Re: [802SEC] [802SEC] EC electronic ballot on 802.22 press release
If this were a recirc, I think it would be fine
to send around a marked-up copy for review.
However, in a new ballot, I think that the voters
need to see a clean copy. Otherwise, I think you
introduce unnecessary ambiguity add make the task
of the voters unnecessarily complicated.
Since you had already distributed a preview copy,
I understand why you wanted to show markups. But,
on principle, I think it is important that the
ballot group members see a clean copy and know
that this is the document they are voting to
