Certainly,
However, if we can come to some agreement over e-mail, this might be better, so we can put the final doc before folks sooner rather than later.
I went back and read the two paragraphs that you mention - why is this additional clarification needed ?  I don't follow from the context, though the statement seems innocuous.

Per Jeremiah Willcock's comments, we'd like to add one small clarifying paragraph to the Fortran section.  I think it's totally safe, but it's somehow intangibly above the "chapter author can add it himself" threshold for me.  Specifically: I think the current text is a little weak, but sufficient.  I'm therefore on the fence as to whether the text is *needed* in MPI-3.0 or whether it could be pushed to MPI next.

Can this be added to the agenda during the discussion of user comments for the MPI-3.0 draft 2?

Here's the specific proposal:
