They aren't mentioned anywhere, but the part that really matters is the FORMAL definitions which occupy a mere three pages, easy enough to memorize.
Some oldtimers will remember the "green card" which had nothing to do with US Immigration. I've often thought I'd prefer a green card portabilizing only those three pages (pages 12 through 14). They would be number-stamped and signed out to all database programmers. Losing one would be treated as the same offence as a soldier losing his rifle. Received on Sat Dec 20 2008 - 17:00:46 CET
