Thanks, I’ve updated the document. Part of the problem is that I am not sure where I can find the set of documents that were inputed to the vote? 

Is there an official list of those documents?

Kind regards,

It so happens that the syntactic forms are the same, but it is proper to distinguish declaration from use as has been done throughout the JLS since 1996.
