Perhaps I can help.
It seems that, despite marking my document DRAFT etc., I've offended
some people by in their view giving the impression that the document
is currently anything more than something I'm working on - with
people's help, of course, but not necessarily their approval.
So, I apologise for giving that mistaken impression. I'd appreciate
it if that apology could be accepted so that we can get on with
talking about what's really important - the substantive content.
Would it help if I put `DRAFT PROPOSED' at the top of my next draft
instead of just `DRAFT' ? Would that make it clear that there is not
(yet, anyway) any formal approval from anyone but me ?
