I've looked into Martin's request, and I think it will be OK to relax the constraint, though I think there should be some caveats/qualifications. I'll work on what I think would be appropriate wording - I'll try to do that quickly in case Vlad is able to incorporate something into docs for the upcoming MPEG meeting.

Dear Vladimir,

> This is just a friendly reminder that we have one week left to discuss the changes in the 4th edition Working Draft of the OFF standard. Your comments on both previously introduced and newly proposed changes would be much appreciated. We've had significant changes made in the description of the CFF2 table and CFF2 CharString format - I'd like to ask for your time to review and comment on these portions of the document.

As mentioned a few times now:

> I would like to return to a discussion thread that got dropped a while back and that is I would like to remove the following paragraph from chapter2:
> "If a Script table with the script tag 'DFLT' (default) is present in the ScriptList table, it must have a non-NULL DefaultLangSys and LangSysCount must be equal to 0. The 'DFLT' Script table should be used if there is not an explicit entry for the script being formatted."
