Hi Martin,

All my other review comments are satisfied, save just one:

Sorry I meant that you are honing in on HELD even outside of the

That's right, and I don't think you should create a separate spec.  Now

HELD to try to determine whether in fact this spec updates that spec. 
If so that should be indicated.
