Thanks you for the voice of truth.  I realized this too but I felt it 
was less important to be technically correct at that time becuase there 
was truth to John statement regardless of the actual physical number of 
transactions.  Even at 300,  it is simply beyond the immediate scope of 
the UBL groups work.


Thank you for joining and planning on attending the working group in 

See you all there.
