Re: Remaining issues with impact on the syntax

There are still a number of "issues" in the list of comments from 
Peter.[1] I don't believe we have looked carefully at those, and we need 
to decide which ones are editorial, which are substantive, and which 
should be captured in tracker. A good first step would be to be sure 
that we have noted which ones are resolved, so we don't waste time on them.
