Your comment on G86: Providing a text summary that requires reading ability
less advanced ...:
> Refer to technique G86:

> 
> However, the example and the procedure both state, "summary requires

> Isn’t there a disconnect between the title of the technique and its

> Proposed Change: Modify the title to something like, "G86: Providing a

> summary that requires reading ability less advanced than the lower
> secondary education level before an article," etc.


Working Group Resolution (LC-2850):
Thanks for your comment and suggested text. This technique title does need
upgrading. 

We will update the title to be more clear:

G86: Providing a text summary that can be understood by people with lower
secondary education level reading ability
