Comment: 
This whole section seems strangely biased.


"In both cases the processor will not be able to distinguish when to apply the first or the second transcription."


The above statement only applies for the text-to-speech author. For ASR, this is a perfectly valid approach, and theresolution will cause no problems.


"the current version of specification is not able to instruct the PLS processor how to distinguish the two pronunciations"should read "the current version of specification is not able to instruct the PLS processor *performing text-to-speech* how to distinguish the twopronunciations".
