Chris, the three options are:

 1. Call CSS 2.1 a new edition of the original CSS2.

 2. Rescind the original CSS2.

 3. Do what the CSS working group are doing today.

You said you didn't want 3. We can't do 1, because we have made normative 
changes. Yet you were requiring that we do either 1 or 2. That leaves 2.

Hence, my conclusion that you were asking for 2.

Since apparently that _isn't_ what you are asking, I once again request 
you to please re-explain what it is that the CDF and SVG working groups 
are asking for in this issue.
