Re: [802SEC] RE: 802.0 ReCirculation
In the cover note you refer to 'legal issues' and 'negative legal
ramifications' without specifically identifying they are. It is essential
for the balloter to understand what those legal issues are. I recommend
the IEEE lawyers should explain the issues and they be included in the next
recirc ballot package if there is one.
I also agree with Jim's points. I will vote disapprove.
