Re: [802SEC] +++ Early Close 10-day EC Motion+++ #1 Approval of comments to MCMC (Malaysia) on our viewpoints to WRC-19 Agenda Items

Good catch.  802.15 has an Interest Group for Tera-Hertz communication. One of the IG's considerations is changes to the THz PHYs to address changing needs including regulatory changes.  Saying "will revise IEEE 802.15.3d-2017"  isn't strictly accurate as we don't revise amendments; it is accurate to say that 802 has a process to revise or amend the existing standard(s) and we expect to use that process to respond to regulatory changes.  If we changed "Std. IEEE 802.15.3d-2017" to "IEEE Std 802.15.3" it would be more accurate and the correct nomenclature.  If "will" is changed to "has a process to" I think the intention of the statement is preserved. I also think that falls within the editorial license granted the chair by the TAG motion.

Just my thoughts.

Can you explain the basis for this offer?:

However, IEEE 802 will revise Std. IEEE 802.15.3d-2017 according to the outcome of WRC-19 if necessary...

Is there an approved revision project scoped to address the outcome of WRC-19? If not, then I don't think we are authorized to make such a promise.

I also have some editorial concerns.
