Evidently someone is confused as to what "barge in" means.

I would have thought that "barge in" is what happens if the person on the
phone interrupts prompts. But perhaps the VoiceXML committee feels
differently, as evidenced by the addition of the parenthetical statement in
the VoiceXML 2.0 proposal:

The prompt will not be stopped until a complete match of an active grammar
is detected. Input that does not match a grammar is ignored (note that this
even applies during the timeout period); as a consequence, a nomatch event
will never be generated in the case of hotword bargein.

That "note" is not by my definition of bargein a clarification, but rather a
significant change to the specification. Am I the only one who thinks so?
