II suspect the real issue here is clarity rather than correctness. Perhaps
your partner in this endeavor is a lawyer? (This is based on experience with

Perhaps you could convince your colleague to adopt some other wording so
that people won't have to do a logic diagram to understand the content?

Regards,

Kathleen
