    This is a new standard. There were some comments received during the final ballot that were listed as comments but could not be addressed editorially, There was also a D18.91 review that was done on the standard as well that had some comments that could not be addressed editorially. In order to deal with these non-editorial comments expeditiously it was decided to move them to new business and to complete what was compiled for the new standard, This would allow the outstanding issues to be balloted using a clean copy to work and with the changes on the ballot being less confusing or overwhelming.
