I was wrong to write as "ML"; all three instances I've heard about this were at offline meetings, one of which we attended together, then followed up by private e-mails. Sorry for the confusion.

I guess I didn't make clear enough about this, sorry about that.

With regards to "auto" feature, Murata-san and I are in sync. Both of us are looking at the same feature requirements.

What Murata-san is saying is that, the "auto" part is an advanced feature and there's no consensus in Japan whether it should be CSS feature or application level feature yet. And in this regard, my personal opinion matches to Murata-san's again; it should be worked out in future and not in writing modes level 3. I'm just passing the information to the ML as a responsibility of a person who have heard the requests in Japanese.

> The one general comment...

This comment is about scaling and is not restricted to "auto" feature, so I'm splitting the thread.
