As Co-Facilitator of the Task Force, I want to correct the record here.

It is incorrect to say that we did not consider each individual change

individual proposal by URI reference to our WBS survey and to the minutes of the meeting where we
discussed each proposal individually:

For  convenience our deliberations are minuted at:

My apology if this was too obscure in the chain of URIs.
