Not "doh" but it makes me feel good that most have been addressed. To wit: 1. Air Entrainment: THANKS!
2. Slope to Drain: DONE.
3. Broom Finish: DONE.
4. Crack repair: THANKS!
5. Steel protection: I am using a heavier-than-typical spec on the
galvanizing for the composite steel deck. Anything else I should consider? Structural steel is galvanized as per usual in process structures. 6. Corrosion inhibitors: THANKS! 7. Pozzolanic admixtures: OR Silica Fume, perhaps?

Really, Jim, thanks, this is the sort of sanity check I was looking for.
