Was it really, and that long ago? Of course, as you haven't provided
us with the (often requested) interim draft spec of KS (despite
repeated requests from many of us, Michael), you can hardly blame us
poor polygolot "non-linguists" for failing to remember all these
arbitrary decisions made by one or two on this list simply ages ago.
When IS that draft KS spec coming? Or, at least, when is a response
coming to the (seconded) request made on this a little while back?
Do note that, if still unanswered, this request for a draft KS spec
will not simply go away.
