I accept Bob Grow's ammendment to the motion that Rich made and I seconded.
I would like to encourage every one to think of this motion as incremental
progress. If we adopt the motion, we will have a solid starting point,
and we can add other distance objectives, or revise the numbers stated
in this objective, at any time before we ballot the standard.
As far as the 2-3 km vs 10 km debate, I agree that 10 km would be
preferable. I must point out that if we wind up with 10 km, we would
have met an objective that required only 3 km. If, in the course of
writing the standard, we find that 10 km can readily be achieved at
some acceptable cost premium over 3 km, then we would most likely write
the specification in support of 10 km.
