I have augmented with my comments your work. I believe you have
made a significant contribution. For me, coming at the UAG from
that slice, without having been close to the recent face-to-face
and discussions, has given a refreshed view. However, as I am
behind, some of my comments may well have been well-discussed.

I believe I have probably raised some new issues. Ian or Jon,
please use your judgement, and if they are in fact new, move
them to the appropriate place for discussion/deferral.

Per Ian's request to Jon,
Do you have a single HTML version of the document with your
suggestions integrated? It would be easier to read.
Thank you,
- Ian

In it my comments should stick out, as they are in bold-italic.
