So apparently, shortly after that, you came up with a grammar that was different, and presented it to the WG as something the four of us had agreed to that best addressed the comments of the survey. No wonder I am confused. The WG voted on something I wasn't even aware of, and which had not been adaquately discussed beforehand.

I like the one we had most recently discussed better. It just needed a little tweaking.

I'll need time to look at it. Slipping it in under the radar during a holiday week  under the guise of something we had talked about, didn't afford me the time to give it much attention. I do think it is natural and clear to use 'circle to <extent>'.

The fact that you stuck something we hadn't discussed into an ED doesn't make it particularly more special than the last thing we had started to discuss. I do like fantasai's proposal that we had begun discussing, but with changes.
