Would this go in S&AS or Test?  Since Test didn't go to LC, I think 
that would be the easiest place to mention this and we could do that 
at any time.  If it needs to go in S&AS, we will see where we stand 
after LC - that is, we may get LC comments with respect to datatypes 
that we would address by adding such words.  Also, since this doesn't 
change the design of the langauge (i.e. we are all assuming the 
handling must be consistent with the datatype definitions, so it's 
just a matter of whether we feel we need to add text to the normative 
definition) it is something we can do editorially without having to 
do a new LC -- so, in essence, process is simply not to do anything 
to S&AS at this time.

Also, please remember what we were reminded of at last week's telecon 
-- by agreeing to move to LC, members of THIS working group have 
agreed we have the design right, and should not be sending LC 
complaints - you've had your shot over the past 18 months - time for 
the rest of the world to bring up their issues.
