OK, we're getting closer. Why do you think the 8.3 supports the idea of
DG -> FG -> FMG? Here it is:

8.3 f): "'Final Maintenance Guideline' is an errata to or amendment of
an existing CAB Forum Final Guideline."

That seems fairly clearly to me to state that an FMG is a "patch" to an
FG (i.e. a whole document), not that such a patch starts as a DG,
becomes an FG and then becomes an FMG. Can you explain more clearly how
you construe these words to reach your interpretation?
