Tom's point has merit.  Here are two ways we could accommodate it
without dropping the item entirely:
1. Instead of using the term "Partial Support" or "Qualified Support" or
"Support", we could simply say "See comments below".
2. Simply say "Support" and insert our comments.  In my opinion,
everyone seems to support the WG approach as long as it is designed in a
flexible manner. As I said in earlier emails, a lot of work needs to be
done to implement this recommendation so there is plenty of opportunity
to design the flexibility we think is critical into the process.
The purpose of comments is to assist the BGC WG in finalizing the
recommendations.  If we totally drop this item without making a comment
about our conclusion that the WG approach must be designed with adequate
flexibility, then we will have missed the opportunity to make a critical
point for BGC WG consideration.

	I have to disagree, as a non native this kind of language is,
sorry for my openenss, confusing the heck out of me. I'd rather paint it
black or white for clarity sake. In my mind there just is no such thing
as unanimous support for parts of a recommendation. We either agree with
it or not. In the case of working groups it is very clear that we do not
agree. So why don't we just strike it from the list of agreed

why this is more understandable especially since we then go and give our

		So we are sayiing "we unanimously partially support the
recommendation"? Sounds a little confusing to me. At the same time, note
that in my response to Philip just sent a couple minutes ago, I
suggested "Qualified Support". I think it may be an improvement to say
"we unanimously support a recommendation with qualifications".
