Hi Antony,

Thanks for your input. I've made some changes to the draft document to
address issues you raised:

   - I've clarified the general position of trademark issues so that it
   *We support the Scorecard's name-protection measures which are consistent
   with the STI consensus recommendations, subject to the ALAC minority report
   on the STI

   - Support for 6.1.3 (going beyond exact matches for IP claims) did slip
   through accidentally; that has been fixed.
   The Statement already indicates that the ALAC opposes going beyond exact
   matches for the URS (#6.2.13)

Thanks especially for the catch on 6.1.3.

*Categories are implicity problematic and despite what the authors have
> written and what ALAC might feel on the subject, they have been rejected by
> the entire community time and time again.*

So... Despite what ALAC might want, you assert that "the entire community"
has rejected categories. It logically follows that, in your opinion, ALAC is
outside "the entire community". That's unfortunate.

you could at least make a minimal attempt to spell my name right.
