Dennis,

I think that write-ins are a serious concern and should be well accounted
for in your proposed final product. Whether to put them in the demo is your
call.

I AGREE THAT WRITE-INS ARE A SERIOUS CONCERN, BUT THINK THAT WE SHOULD KEEP
THE DEMO SIMPLE AND BE ABLE TO TALK TO AND ABOUT WRITE-INS. WE ARE THINKING
OF HANDLING SCORING SYSTEMS IN A SIMILAR WAY. IN BOTH CASES, IT WOULD BE
GOOD TO HAVE SOME EXAMPLES ON HAND TO ILLUSTRATE OUR CAPABILITIES AND TO
DEMONSTRATE THAT WE ARE NEUTRAL WITH RESPECT TO RULES FOR HANDLING WRITE-INS
AND FOR SCORING BALLOTS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR WRITE-IN SCENARIOS?

ARNIE
