Re: Tighter MPI spec

Hello Jon,

We're attempting to get to last call on the document.

That places things in perspective, of course.

we don't 
need small changes that add no particular value.

The specification of the MPI format has a *flaw* that forces compliant
implementations to do more work than desired or intended.  This is
outright embarassing in a standard.

While these changes 
may make things clearer for you, they're likely to irritate someone 


I don't find the MPI changes to be clearer. I find them less clear,

My goal is to take away the ambguity.  The exact wording is just a way
to get that done.  Any other phrasing would be fine.

Hope this helps,
