Hi Robert,

Of course I'm pleased to hear that, as this is also in line with our
opinions on mathematical notation.  In fact we're using the same
arguments about cultural differences for justifying why people need
our tools for adaptive rendering :-)

I agree with you that the renderings in the spec should consistently
be called "sample renderings" (or "suggested renderings") instead of
"default renderings". Then, to point out that they are just examples,
you could also mention alternatives in some cases where there are
widely used or otherwise well-known alternatives renderings.

Cheers,

Christoph
