It appears that the page has been updated, there is now a CARIBBEAN 
and ST. PIERRE AND MIQUELON in the sector.  There are two other 
sectors listed as well, CANADA SECTOR, and UNITED STATES AND 

I thank the AC and staff for resolving these last couple issues.  I think this is 
an excellent resolution to a couple minor issues and nicely clarifies what is 
included without cluttering the policy itself.  Further, I think this eliminates 
any need for an additional policy to tweak the included islands.  

I fully support this policy in its last call form.
