Issue: COERCE-INCOMPLETE (Version 1)

My notes from Fairfax meeting...

Cleanup meeting:

 KMP took responsibility for next draft.

X3J13 meeting:

 RWK: Maybe we should just remove COERCE?

 Beckerle: Maybe we should make COERCE generic?

 KMP: It is inappropriate to make anything generic if you cannot describe
      what it does. Since this issue is about what COERCE does, the issue
      cannot be solved by making COERCE generic. 

 Greenblatt: Let's keep generic functions out of the language as must as
	     possible on this "first round". [KMP thinks he meant the standard
	     we're working on -- leaving the issue of making more things
	     generic for a later standard.]
