Hi Vicente,

What's the difference in the IAE exceptions describing IAE's as
being "incorrect formats' vs 'is invalid' or 'not valid'?

Each requires a spec for valid and invalid strings or is undefined.

Can the new IAE use the same language as is used for the ofDescriptor 
Avoiding any question about differences.

69:  Also, is the word 'lookup' overloaded?  Is 'lookup' is significant 
in this context?
