Thanks for the careful look at P&O.  We'll discuss this during the 
"Framework documents" segment of the agenda [3] for Friday.  We also have 
the previous contributions of yours, [1] and [2].  QAWG attendees, please 
have a look at these.  There hasn't been any pushback yet, so let's endorse 
and integrate (or debate and modify).
