4. To ensure that adequate current documentation of the CIF standard is
available to potential users in both printed and machine-readable forms.

Do we still need this? In my mind machine-readable forms are fully sufficient;
the time it takes to provide printed forms could be invested somewhere else.

The item would be even further improved if we deleted '
in both printed and machine-readable forms'.  I agree that we no longer need to require a printed form if this is not needed; it should be sufficient to require that documentation be made available to users, leaving open the decision as to what is the appropriate format.
