Yes, why do you ask?

What do you want to say with that? I think that Proposal B, C and E want
to establish an exception as I wrote above. The point is that I feel
that Anthony does not read the same from those paragraphs. I wonder
why. But it seems it is no longer important, since he has (somehow)
answered the question.

My sentence was rather a suggestive question to Anthony, or the
like. Personally, I have the opinion that the proposals are well
formulated to achieve what (I believe) they want.

You mean E. Proposal C also mentiones sarge, and I don't see how this
would not also establish such an exception.
