That is to match the format of the SA model Sponsor P&P, but not to add or deleted any "governance" content from the current LMSC P&P. (I use the term "Governance" here is sense analogous to the term "normative" in standardese.) This letter ballot was approved at the Friday, March 19, 2004 EC meeting. The rationale for the changes being balloted are as given in the attached cover letter.

The changes are made in Word track changes mode against the SA model Sponsor P&P ( Normally, I would provide a pdf of the changes rather than a word document, but I have placed embedded comments in the file, and don't know how to maintain them in pdf format.  While this is a set of "editorial changes" to bring our P&P into the same overall format as the SA model P&P, the changes are very extensive, and a number of issues for future P&P are noted.  Please review the changes closely.  I expect I will have additional recommendations for editorial changes prior to the close of this ballot.  Note that all embedded comments will be removed from the document once approved, prior to formal release.  The comments are there to highlight issues that have arisen during the reformatting process that will have to be addressed in a future ballot as I believe them to require

It is a heavily commented version of the current P&P that indicates where in the "New P&P" each section of text from the "old P&P" gets mapped.  It will help the reader to confirm that I have neither added nor deleted anything other than editorial content in reformatting the P&P.
