I think it's clear that because of dependencies (802.5, 802.1D, 802.1Q)
will need to reaffirm 802.2, although 20/20 hindsight reveals we'd have
better off adopting the Ethernet DLC as a top-level MAC sublayer and
offering Type field assignments to those who wanted link-level
or addresses.

Can anyone advise as to the possibility of fixing an ancient typo in the
state machines as part of the process? It was supposed to be handled by
editor--part of an ISO Technical Corrigendum proposal that was abandoned
declaring the editor was authorized to make the corrections. A few years
ago, I discovered one item on that list had never been fixed, through
three published editions.

If it means opening up the whole document for revision, it's probably
worthwhile. And at this point, maybe nobody cares any more.

Any advice?
