Thanks for the additional review, it was really hard to make these 
updates in the existing word version. Just for clarification purposes, I 
used the following link:

  * https://github.com/cabforum/documents/compare/master@%7B10-25-19%7D...sleevi:2019-07-Cleanups@%7B10-25-19%7D

that was the red-line in the SC24 ballot. The complete file with all 
changes applied should be

  * https://github.com/sleevi/cabforum-docs/blob/b0afc30fc5a4bfc383965349610437a843230417/docs/BR.md

So, I am trying to compare the "expected" Markdown with the word file.

It may be an issue with the PDF diff but the resulting text is exactly 
the same comparing the Markdown with the pdf redline I posted. I marked 
it as being the same so it doesn't appear in the redline. I applied the 
same fix to other numbered/bulleted item sections that were not touched 
by the ballot.

I added a tab before each asterisk to align under the bullets.

Word took a weird decision to change the heading and renumbered the 
section when I added the new text. I reverted it back and added the text 
in a different sequence which didn't change the numbering of the 
following sections. Looks fixed.

Thanks for digging up this information. I will submit a PR to update BRs 
1.6.6 with this fix as it has been approved by an earlier ballot.

Attached is the v2 of the Baseline Requirements Draft Guideline.

In light of these changes, I would like to extend the review period by 1 
day, ending December 19, 2019.
