Thank you Dave for your comments.
My report merely captures the sentiment the AHG members expressed during
the call last week. Given such a strong interest in overcoming the 64K
glyph limit, and the resource constraints many organizations face - it is
reasonable to prioritize proposed changes and focus on specific things of
high interest to users and implementers. As we proceed with this work,
revisiting the question of priorities would definitely be possible, and, if
a strong case could be made to prioritize another change or update - the
AHG will definitely be able to consider changes in priorities.

Thank you,
