Excuse me for splitting hairs, but isn't it an editor's job to make changes
regardless of the author's approval? Once the manuscript is dead, the editor
takes over. The "Chicago Manual of Style" isn't the Gospel, but it does have
some wortwhile indications on this phase of the editorial process. Am I missing
something obvious?
