[802SEC] RE: [802SEC] [802SEC] EC electronic ballot on 802.22 press release


I think it is nicer to those who managed to find the time to read the
pre-circulated document to provide a change mark-up so they can look at
just what changed from what they already reviewed. With the change
marked document, one can see the final document either by choosing
"Final" from the drop down menu in place of "Final Showing Markup" or by
hitting the "accept all changes" from the accept drop down.

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 approve.
