Hi Pat,

This decision is acceptable.  Subsequent to my initial comment, and after
reading things over a number of times,
I decided that wording of this section was not the root of problem -- I 
found more
problems with the wording of some other sections.  There have been a couple 
of adjustments
made to those other sections, so that wraps up my concerns.

Thanks, Bob
