Hi David,

The first point is, I think, a misunderstanding of what I was trying to say. I've moved the bracketted phrase to the end of sentence, which I hope makes it clearer that it refers to the sentence as a whole, not specifically to "coordinates".

On the 2nd bullet: I've changed the text of standard name definition to clarify that the type restricton does not apply to flags.

cheers, Martin
