I note the addition of the emphasis to the quote. Given that it was necessary 
to emphasise it, I assume that you didn't find it entirely unambiguous and 
encompassing the entire document in one piece. 

I too would like to see the whole document available for review for a 
reasonable period. However you are making (arguable) legal case out of 
something that should be a matter of reasonable practical.
