QAWG --

I'm going to send a few messages, to allow you to preview draft new 
text.  Please speak up if you have problems with any of it.

This happened quickly late in the telecon.  Changes to last pgph of section 
1.2.  The last sentence says something that we haven't articulated before...

"[@@revised0819]Caveat. The set of checkpoints as a whole has been written 
in anticipation that the checkpoints are being applied to new, 
in-development specifications. It is not expected that existing 
specifications that pre-date these guidelines will be able to satisfy all 
checkpoints as they are stated. Many legacy specifications may indirectly 
comply with the spirit or intent of some checkpoints, without actually 
satisfying all requirements in those checkpoints. [@@new0819]It is a design 
goal of this guidelines document, to phrase checkpoint requirements and to 
set priorities so that well-written legacy specifications that meet the 
most critical requirements may qualify for conformance degree 
"A-conforming" (see "Conformance" chapter.)"

Is it okay for SpecGL publication?

-Lofton.
