My concern was that that text was tending toward very specific 
formulation but
I am not yet convinced that it captures the necessary and sufficient 
criteria for
analysis. I believe we are in fact beginning to see a distillation of 
the criteria
through the current wg discussions, but I don't think we are quite ready 
to write
a tight formal specification - perhaps soon.

BTW, the hain/templin -02 draft update is now available at:
