Hi Philippe,

That is quite an extensive set of material you referenced, some of which  
appears to be password protected, and so I cannot easily access.

I believe the Task Force intends to finalise the requirements document  
this afternoon. Can you propose specific wording for a definition if you  
think there are aspects currently missing?

regards


Matt
