This is one of the reasons that we are reconstituting the chapter  
committees to follow the process we used for MPI-1 and MPI-2 -  
chapters (and the document) need to be considered as a whole.  Votes  
should be on consistent parts of the document (typically but not  
always chapters).  This is different than the process for the minor  
corrections to the standard in MPI 2.1 and MPI 2.2.
