Hi David,

I have no particular objection to considering 8.2 style inter-region
transfers separately from 8.3 style transfers. Nevertheless, that's
one of a number of material differences between the draft presented at
the meeting and the draft presented today.

I don't want to belabor the point, so I'll try to confine my following
messages to issues and suggestions for the draft language itself, but
the bottom line is this: I think you guys need to request a ruling
from counsel as to whether language changes of this magnitude are
permissible within the section 4 portion of the PDP process as
published. As I read the PDP, non-cosmetic change requires a return to
the AC's docket, i.e. PDP section 2. And with proposed changes this
significant on a topic of such controversy, I'm inclined to hold your
feet to the fire.
