Completing the UK Land & Property Gazetteer

I wrote a paper Valuebill after Acacia: forward addressing!
for the UK Association for Geographic Information (AGI) in June, suggesting a course of action to speed up the completion of the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG). It was endorsed by AGI's Public Policy Special Interest Group on 13 September but AGI's Council did not approve it on 29 September because certain of its members alleged that it contained inaccuracies. I am told that it will be considered again at AGI Council's next meeting.
So far no specific 'inaccuracies' have been pointed out to me, although changes have been suggested to improve clarity and emphasis. AGI has not yet posted the paper on its web-site and it is unclear how members will be able to comment on a paper that they haven't been told about!
Aware that certain bodies with a commercial interest want the NLPG to take an entirely different route, also that a large number of AGI members depend on one or more of those bodies for their custom, I have decided to put the document on my own website and ask everyone I know to please read it - and comment back to me - and AGI direct.
The key passages (and recent changes) in the document are highlighted in yellow.
