Lofton,

I read the text again and kept in mind your issue, the spirit of the 
two checkpoints is still preserved in the text in a GP and a principle.

An explicit reference to
	3.2 Principle A
in the techniques of
	1.1 Good Practice C

I have modified the techniques in trying to make a step toward your 
position and request. I hope it answers one part of your concerns. I'm 
looking for a way to solve this issue.

Could you live with this? Or it's not enough?

If it's not enough, would you accept that we close the issue that you 
could open again on Last Call WD, if you really think that we are not 
respecting the spirit of the document.

Best.
