Hi Scott and Carl-Uno,

I agree with Scott's proposed changes.

Harry Lewis (IBM, co-editor of IPP Admin) is on vacation until
next week (he's been gone two weeks).  I'll chase him to reply
about this early next week.

Cheers,
- Ira

Scott,

I don't see any harm in changing the text as you have suggested.

Objections from anybody else on the DL or we are done, not only with
this documents, but with all the original work items of the WG?
