So that we can ensure the new definition is adequate to resolve any 
ambiguities that the CDF and SVG WGs believe exist, could the CDF and SVG 
WGs please let us know which statements were considered to ambiguously 
refer to either style sheets in general or CSS style sheets in particular, 
and what the CDF and SVG WGs would consider appropriate language for the 
definition of the "CSS style sheet" term?

We are not sure we can adequately address your concern without this 
information.

Thanks,
