I have read both N0323 and N0372 and wondered if you could illustrate 
the difference you mention as:

I am assuming by "syntax" parts you mean XTM and/or HyTM. Can you say a 
little more about how N0372 changes that allocation? It may be too early 
(US time) but I am not seeing the distinction you mention between N0323 
and N0372.
