It's not that PMG cannot explain the Standards...that would be too
voluminous a task even if they were 100% clear. As with any document of of
such wide coverage, there are indeed places where the specific intent is
vague...that is why we have a listserv to discuss them! I think that if
you were to cite a particular area, subject, or topic about which you feel
the Standards are particularly unclear, persons would be energetic about
discussing said topic.
