How exactly does that apply? Are you saying that because the proposal CAN apply the change it specified, and that it specified a change designated as a convergence, it did in fact apply a change designated as a convergence? I feel a bit uncertain; maybe the proposal fails to designate its own specified change as a convergence (because the rules don't explicitly allow a proposal to do that), but does apply the change. Anyway, is the text "To the extent allowed by the rules" harmless at least? James
