Comment (including rationale for proposed change):
The note to SC 3.1.2 reads: \"This requirement does not apply to individual words or phrases that have become part of the primary language of the content.\": this is a problem for foreign words in a passage or quote that is not in the primary language.
This wording was introduced in the June 2006 Working Draft; before that, it read \"This does not include use of foreign words in text where such usage is a standard extension of the language,\" but I believe this was changed because the term \"foreign\" was considered problematic.
Rephrase the note to: \"This requirement does not apply to individual words or phrases that have become part of the language of the immediately neighbouring text.\"
We have revised the note to read, "This requirement does not apply to individual words. It also does not apply to proper names, to technical terms or to phrases that have become part of the language of the context in which they are used."
