Ok, so maybe that is the optimist in me, but considering all the angst
this issue has caused, I can't imagine the TC would embark on anything
that wouldn't be more "friendly" than the discussions we have had at
this point.

I actually asked this very same question to them, and it is at their
request that I reply summarizing what we talked about and inviting them
to further participate.

You are correct - typo. Meant to say that we agreed at the 7/15 meeting
that the current spec, minus the minor edits we discussed at that
meeting, was what we were going to vote on to ratify. I will correct in
the letter.
