John's proposal, which I support, overarches the discussion about the
scope of the algorithm. There has never been consensus on having
section 11/12 in the spec. I have asked for an alternative solution to
be presented:

 - Issue: should we replace the numbering systems described in chapter
   11 with spelled-out lists that can be expressed without defining
   algorithms? Before deciding, spelled-out lists up to, say 100, should be
   added for comparison purposes.

I expect it to be present in the upcoming WD.
