    o Deletion of some titles and added others for consistency purposes.
  • Updating LDC cross-references.  Deleted cross-references where deemed unnecessary. Generalized where possible to avoid ending up with wrong cross-references in the future (e.g. as required in Chapter 5, instead of as required in Section 504.3.2).
