Stephane, I know you're asking what others think, but just a point of 
clarification. The second sentence of my definition did not "link" CO to VI, it 
_differentiates_ or distinguishes the two. It makes it clear that we do NOT 
consider CO as defined there to be a form of VI. 

For all the reasons we've discussed, I think that distinction is very 
important, and will really help the WG to have a more focused and rational 
discussion of the policy issues.
