Yes, except that I said it wasn't a reasonably minor change to make
which is slightly different than (2).

It's more correctness than style. I think it's quite on-topic
considering that this WG is about a protocol for communications which
must be perfect.

Chopping up quotes below the level of whole sentences is not real
helpful for productive discussions. It's like some sort of fragmentation
attack.

This whole discussion could be some sort of meta-recapitulation of the
discussions we've had about the semantics of SCSV. Perhaps it
foreshadows something positive?
