Unless you have come around to Mark's view on this, I believe
we should request a clarification of RL1.1 Hex Notation.  If so,
would you care to do submit the request, or shall I?

Also, might you like anything in requirement RL1.2a clarified?
It seems to me there is at least one point there that could use
some tightening up, namely the \w and \b relation which is only
made clear upon reading further in tr18.  Anything else?



    PS: I'll be out of touch for the next ~30 hours on family matters.
