Guus and I have no trouble conceiving it, but if we don't get 
SPECIFIC issues and resolutions proposed, we'll never finish

  REVIEW COMMENTS ARE EDITORIAL - chairs aren't interested in hearing 
about them until we are at LC --  OR TECHNICAL - in which case make 
it clear which ones need dealing with

Herman - same comment as to the above - most of your comments are 
editorial, and are just waiting for Peter to get around to them. 
Please pull out those you think effect the design of the language

I'm tempted to send both of you to the time out corner -- there's a 
certain kindergarten dynamics at work here :-<

look, if we can get these things to proposed resolutions the WG can 
vote on, then the document will reflect the decisions, The AS&S 
editors have never to my knowledge gone against a WG decision on 
purpose.  But frankly, if I was an AS&S editor, I'd be hesitant to 
keep making changes because I think we're at the point of changing 
things one way and then changing them back later.  WIthout specific 
technical decisions, all we're doing is asking editors to waste their 
time editing -- but it is frustrating to fix wording changes if their 
are TECHNICAL issues being discussed - because those can require 
major sections.

that the WG can resolve and we will make progress.
