Hi, in 4.1.5 it says that

proxies should n't bla bla unless
  1. foo
  2. bar
  3. baz

(OK I might have paraphrased a little).

The problem is that the document doesn't specify whether all of these  
conditions must apply, or any one of them must apply, or what. (There's  
another instance of a similar brevity leading to ambiguity in 4.2.9)

I think that the intent is that any one of the conditions apply in 4.1.5,  
and in 4.2.9. But if our wordmaster could put a couple of extra words into  
those sections it would be helpful to remove any trace of ambiguity.
