I suppose I need to defend the work I've already put in, then. I
proposed a set of edits that primarly removed unnecessary language in
the 2.0 draft, and clarified what was muddy language. That is, I
propose that the edits I've offered actually *have* worked out 'the
character set problem', and I question the assesment that "I don't
think that will be anytime real soon".
