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.
