        Comment [ A suggestion made several years ago by a Sun lawyer:

        Change the definition of Output from:

        "the Specification and associated Reference Implementation and Technology Compatibility Kit generated by an Expert Group with respect to the JSR for which that Expert Group is formed."

        to:

        "the Specification and associated Reference Implementation and Technology Compatibility Kit generated by an Expert Group, *in any pre-final as well as final forms*, with respect to the JSR for which that Expert Group is formed." ]
