Subject: alternative interlingua

The problem that I have with your set of assumptions is that it is possible
(and easy, and thus probable) to use the interlingua in a manner similar to
the parody that I presented in my last message.  This use of
side-agreements, as sanctioned by assumption 3B, between, for example,
CLASSIC and LOOM, subverts the meaning of expressions in the interlingua
and, in my opnion, makes it of much less interest (although, perhaps, of
more use) than even the current interlingua proposal.
