How do you expect to get our system certified when it's a model
fundamentally different from what they've certified in the past? Their
procedures and rules have to be expanded. There is nothing unusual about
this either. New voting technology comes along all the time and the
creators of that technology have to deal with the people approving it.

You characterization is just plain wrong. It's not a matter of playing by
the rules. It's a process by which we get them to accommodate a new
technology. This is done all the time.
