[802SEC] RE: 802.0 ReCirculation

I will vote Do Not Approve,

pending review of what the Front Matter says, and a statement in the Front
Matter that this "Front Matter is not part of the standard and was not
approved by ballot". Rationale is the front matter policy statement should
clearly state that it was not part of the standard ballot process. In the
past, there have been several ballot comments on the front matter, and
whether this is part of the standard or not, was a discussion item.

Jim -

The IEEE lawyers considered it to be a problem that the clause would simply
disappear in this revision; hence the NOTE. As the front matter is not the
subject of the ballot (it is not part of the standard), the front matter
text was not included in the ballot package.
