Good morning Andrew!

There is no copyright license for the attachments - yet; nevertheless, I expect the below text - or something like it - to apply. I cannot guarantee there will be no changes between now and when the CAR request is fulfilled. I certainly expect this will not take as long as it did with the schema.

Also, if it is the licence you posted earlier in this thread, is this considered 'schema'?  (Given we need to incorporate the whole file, I need it to fall under the exception to the 'portions of' rule).
