I've gotten lost regarding what we are "voting" on. I reviewed the arch=
find an attempt by Carl Kugler to point out confusion and complexity re=
NLO. First note May 29, re-emphasis October 7. Based on a subsequent th=
Carl issued a proposal (October 9) which I find clear and succinct.
http://www.egroups.com/list/ipp/4604.html Later, Tom Hastings issued a=
separate, 4 part proposal with two votes embedded or implied. I THINK i=
Tom's desire to replicate Carl's proposal (not modify it) into the
specifications and he felt it best to look at each part separately.
If there is a difference between Carl's proposal, taken as a whole, and=
which we are voting on, I would like to understand what is different, a=
I do find it easier to review and understand Carl's one part write-up t=
4 part scenario which seems to have interlinked behavior (if you vote f=
you may not need that...).
Carl and others, including Keith Moore, have tried to express that the =
scheme is unduly complex and prone to error. Carl's proposal represents=
simpler scheme where every text and name attribute would have an explic=
natural language thereby simplifying the implementation with fewer attr=
syntax's, and reducing the number of attributes which have multiple syn=
all with NO LOSS of functionality.

I will remind peole that we voted to that ipp1.0 was done other then th=
