Re: [802SEC] Path to resolution of 802.11 VHT60 PAR
At the EC meeting, I expressed concern not just with the definition of
"coexistence" but about the definition of "ensure coexistence."
According to Merriam-Webster <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ensure

Also, 802.15.2 says that coexistence is "The ability of one system to
perform a task in a given shared environment where other systems have
an ability to perform their tasks and may or may not be using the same
set of rules." As I understand the definition, it cannot be applied
unless the "shared environment" is "given". So it seems to be that it
ought to be specified in the PAR. It also seems to me that the "tasks"
need to be defined as well.
