sec 3 para 1 typos:
  "the real" -> "the realm"
  "prescription" -> "proscription"

sec 3 para 1 suggested rephrasing:
  " a proscription (on the effect of certain potentially evaluated string literal expressions) that is outside "

sec 2.2/6 and 2.3 suggestion:
  make the literal more recognizable by stating it as a power of two minus one

sec 3 para 2 suggested rephrasing:
  " limit on the line-number explicitly recognizes an implicit constraint (on programs) that is best diagnosed "

sec 2 title: "Changes" -> "Proposed wording"

sec 1 para 2: "section 3" -> either "section 3" or "3"

sec 1 para 1: "At that meeting, the attendance felt strongly that " -> "Those attending that meeting felt strongly that " or "That meeting's attendees felt strongly that "

sec 2.3: " in #line directive " -> " in a #line directive "


Best,
