I guess consensus is the only possibility. AFAIC, if we have a
first discussion at 8.00, then the wordsmiths could work further to re-present
a revision for discussion between 10.40 and 12.00….
I’ve looked through the communiqué and tried to establish
whether our concept map still captures the main elements – I think it
does, with the exception of the descriptive/prescriptive dimension (which

By when is the final draft going to be decided upon? I
have a number of difficulties with this, as I suspect others will as

A second question - how will acceptance of the draft be
adjudicated? Is there a voting procedure? If so, who gets a vote

to put into formulating a response since it would be impossible to predict what
effect even the best of responses would have on the result.
