While I am sure I will find things to quibble about on deeper rereading, on
first reading I pretty much find this acceptable though do have one issue.
With regard to:

This is not what I am comfortable with. What I would be comfortable with is
replacing any list of discriminations with a phrase such as " any
discriminations that are generally recognized under international law". The
discussion on this was rather hurried so I am not sure I made myself clear at
I still feel strongly that if any discriminations are mentioned, then a more
comprehensive list should be included. But I am fine if the entire explicit
list is removed in favor of an implicit list.
