I've asked Jean to handle the work of evaluating and/or integrating any 
feedback from you and Rajendra into this series.  Jean, has this latest 
series fully considered those issues?  Or are there still some areas of 
misalignment / lack of clarity?

Anyway.  If there's a problem with this process, it sounds like you, 
Rajendra, Jean, Benoît and I should schedule some time to talk over the 
same issues that you discussed with me on the phone.  Perhaps next week?
