Dear Nick,

Thank you very much for your revision. Just let me make some minor

a) By decision, the term "property link" should not be used.

b) I propose a common notation for "see also" references. Who is in favour
     for "cf." ?, is this an ISO recommendation?

E49: "prehistoric" seems more to be an appellation for a period: It has different meaning
     from place to place (and from people to people). I prefer "B.C." as example.

E53: Is "Here -><-" the point on my paper copy of your text? Just for fun...

I regarded as useful for E46 Section Definition to refer to respective bibliography.

I thought it may be useful to expand the sope notes of E54 Dimension, E55 Type, E57 Material, and
to add more examples at several points. I am not sure, if my extension make the
things more clear than what you have already written, and if my English
is comprehensible. Comments welcome.

Are the terms "universals" and "particulars" generally known, or do they need
definition/ reference ?

I attach my proposal for another revision.
