[Gnso-epdp-team] Some badly needed wording fixes as we finalize interim report

Milton, All,

I have to strongly object to Milton's suggestion that the text of Rec #2 be
updated as he suggests.   We debated the language for Purpose B (now
purpose 2 of Rec #1) for weeks if not months - reviewing many versions and
numerous iterations.    By the time we all got to Barcelona the current
language of purpose #2 is where we ended up and if you remember I expressed
the deep concern the IPC had with the language.

In order to move forward James B. suggested a compromise - resulting in
what is now Rec #2 - addressing our concern and allowing us to move
forward.  I greatly appreciated (and still appreciate) this pragmatic
suggestion from James and was encouraged that there was no objection from
any of us in the room.

The request that we change the language of Rec #2 essentially undoes this
compromise and puts us back in time many weeks.  A major change to the
intent of  a recommendation such as this is inappropriate and must not be
