I know the 2011 NEC is still new and most do not even own one yet but.....

We only have until November 4 2011 to submitt code change proposals for the 2014 NEC.

I know the feeling, but it never hurts to try.

My main thing is I'd like to see all references to "ground" removed when not referring to an actual earth connection like the GEC. Change it to "bond" and clear up some of the confusion.

But apparently this is submitted every cycle, and always rejected. Figures.

Can you submit to have the proposal evaluated based on its merit and not whether it meets the style manual?

You submit a proposal and they will decide if it has merit. If the substantiation is valid you may be okay. There are many thinks they look at. I think if it has merit but you worded it poorly they may rework it. There is no form to submit for merit.

My post was somewhat tongue in cheek. I have seen reasonable proposals rejected and the reason used was because of writing style, not the merit of the change.
