RE: +++PROPOSED RULE CHANGE LETTER BALLOT
Paul, Bill & Jim: Although I support the intent of this rules change I find I must vote NO on the current draft because I think it is exceedingly confusing for the reader. May I suggest that you consider simplifying things to deal with 3 issues: "procedural", "draft standard", and "technical" and provide a clear description for each. May I further suggest that you refrain from using the terms "confirmation ballot" and "recirculation ballot" unless you provide concise definitions of these terms or unambiguous references to such definitions.
