PRI #121 (August, 2008) pre-dated the practice of keeping all the 
feedback comments together with the PRI itself in a numbered directory 
with the name "feedback.html". But the comments were collected together 
at the time and are accessible here:

Also there was a separately submitted comment document:

And the minutes of the pertinent UTC meeting (UTC #116):

The minutes simply capture the consensus to adopt Option #2 from PRI 
#121, and the relevant action items.

I now return the floor to the distinguished disputants to continue 
litigating history. ;-)
