I've now put Phill's latest version [1] up on the web site. Can
I ask that folks who are going to send comments prior to the 
f2f do so based on this version and that, if possible, you send
your comments by the middle of next week. No need to resend
anything already sent of course.

I'll try to make sure we have a page summarizing the main comments
for the f2f.
