Yikes, I had forgotten about this w/r/t our Requirements doc.

The history is that the definition in the requirements doc was agreed by 
the WG
in the very early days of the WG as we began the process of defining our 

Over the summer, there was some discussion on the list[1] and [2] about 
improvements, mostly
gramatical because the definition was rather poorly written and didn't 
parse for some.
The culmination of that thread lead to the definition found in the WSA[3]. 

Personally, I have a strong preference for [3]. It was meant to replace 
the one in the
requirements draft (which we SHOULD IMO have updated at the f2f, but did 
not... my bad).
