The following Fortran interpretations are being balloted:

Yes   No    Number     Title

-C-   ---   F03/0048   Control edit descriptors in UDDTIO

-C-   ---   F03/0049   Separators in list-directed output

-Y-   ---   F03/0089   Interoperability of non-BIND derived types

-Y-   ---   F03/0090   Polymorphic array constructors

Comment on 0048:
I agree with Bill Long's suggested addition to clause 10
Add this paragraph at [236:2+]:

"The left tab limit for a child data transfer statement is the file
position of the parent data transfer statement at the time that the
user-defined derived-type input/output procedure was invoked."

on the grounds that the stuff related to Tx edit descriptors really
belongs in

Comment for 0049:

I agree with Bill Long's comment

In the edit, "list directed" should be hyphenated, and we
have changed "I/O" to "input/output" elsewhere in the standard, so
should here as well.

Comment for 0050
I agree with Van et. al.'s comments

Comment for 0086
I agree with Bill Long's comment

ELEMENTAL is not an "attribute" in the sense that we use that
term in the standard.  Maybe something like "ELEMENTAL shall not be
specified for a procedure with the BIND attribute.", or "An ELEMENTAL
procedure shall not have the BIND attribute."

Comment on 0087
I agree with Bill Long's comment

While we're fixing this constraint, we might as well fix the
end of the sentence as well.  The end is "nor shall appear in an
[258:27], appear only in interface blocks, and are not similar to
EXTERNAL or INTRINSIC.  I suspect we really meant procedure
declaration statements [264:9].
