I considered that, but left the "in general" in recognition of the fact
that we specifically discuss later how extensions can indeed be
created that require the generation of such faults.  I agree this

left to the editorial team.

Again, I suggest that all of this the left to the editorial team to
take a crack at, with the rest of us having a chance to comment in the
unlikely case that we are unhappy with the results.
