Bob, I suggested to ICBO in May that they at least have a public hearing.
Shirin Ader was all set to publish with no public input and decided at the
last minute to open it up. ICBO wants to have the document available at the
1999 ABM in St. Louis this Sept.

Its fair to question the late notice to ICBO. But they're a private,
non-profit - not a government.

The chapter numbering is a staff-level proposal and will be considered along
with other proposals. The latest draft off the net doesn't have the same
chapter numbering as proposed in Mel Green's summary.

On the optimistic side, ICBO is actually accepting proposals via email. Your
wish has finally come true, Dennis...
