    I believe that John's statement needs clarification/correction.

    Proposals that have been submitted from WG2 to SC2 for balloting are
    routinely accepted as such by a somewhat smaller set of the same
    participants in SC2. Thereafter they are regularly changed by ballot
    comments, i.e., following the ISO procedures. Prior processing by the UTC
    does/would reduce the need for these changes.

    Sincerely, Erkki

    However in pratice the process is that proposals submitted to the UTC
    are then submitted to WG2, where changes both small and large are a
    matter of course, but that after proposals leave WG2 for SC2 they are
    never changed. Many proposals quiet correctly go directly to WG2.
