RE: stds-802-16-tg3: Task Group d: startup and Call forContributions


Errors can be more than editorial. The main goal is to address 
technical errors. This would include critical ambiguities and 
inconsistencies. In my opinion, it could also include fixing problems 
more generally, but judgement needs to be applied. We are not 
chartered to re-open the specifications. However, if a convincing 
argument can be made that the standard suffers from a technical flaw 
that unnecessarily limits its usefulness, then it would probably be 
possible for a reasonable person to conclude that there is an error. 
Ultimately, the balloters, and the committees reviewing the ballot 
results, would need to be convinced.
