Excellent job Philip. Thanks.

I am very comfortable supporting this version.

I suggest that if there are any objections to any substantive items in
the document, they need to be communicated NLT COB on Thursday, 29
November.  If none are received, Glen should go ahead and post our
comments on Friday, 30 November.  If there are any substantive
objections to any items, then I think we have no other choice but to
delete those items.  Minor edits (spelling, grammar, etc.) should be
okay if there are any.
