Which standard are you referring to? It would help if you specified a 
concrete place in the documentation that you would like to see changed, 
and a concrete suggestion for what change you would like to see.

You should start with a definition of what precisely you mean by a 
Reiterable, and an example of what does, and what doesn't, count under 
that defintion. Even if you've already done so, this thread has become 
too big and too lumbering for me to keep track of everything discussed 
in it, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
