I suggest that the first bullet point under Working Group Processes be
modified as follows (inserted the second sentence, the rest is the

The WG shall function on the basis of rough consensus, meaning all
points of view will be discussed until the chair can ascertain that the
point of view is understood and has been covered. Consensus views should
include the names and affiliations of those in agreement with that view.
Anyone with a minority view will be invited to include a discussion in
the WG report. Minority report should include the names and affiliations

I have long thought of Final report as name required by the by-laws 
for the document that is produced after the constituency reports and 
before the deliberations, and not an indicator of ordinality.

In any case I have modified the milestones to try and take care of 
these issues.
