Who knows!!  I gather the comments are editorial (not technical) in nature,
and are being sent to John Rible, our document editor.  He will have to
make the changes and I'm not sure what all we have to do then; submit to a
letter ballot, I suppose.  We should also consider whether to factor in the
results of the several "requests for information" that we have acted on as
additional appendices.

Nothing is changed yet.  We still don't have these comments!

>What ISO number will be assigned?

Sorry, no idea!  Will keep you all posted.
