We are accepting this process change because it's something relevant to the publication stream, and it doesn't change the meaning of the document.   That is, we are saying that the output of the editorial process means the same thing as the input, and therefore there is no problem.

Markup of 2119 keywords is different, because we're actually adding a new nuance of meaning.
