    Summary: CORBA 2.1"s GIOP Exception formatting description (12.4.2)
    partitions the space of valid minor codes, with
    20 bits reserved for unique vendor IDs and only 12 bits
    (4096) for possible minor codes for each exception.
    This seems backwards (1 million vendors each with
    only 4 thousand minor codes!) and I would like
    to request a change to (at least) swap these
    numbers with the following textual change:

    The high order 10 bits of minor_code_value contain a 10-bit
    "vendor minor codeset ID" (VMCID); the low order 22 bits
    contain a minor code. A vendor (or group of vendors)
    wishing to define a specific set of system exception
    minor codes should obtain a unique VMCID from the OMG, and
    then define up to (22 bits of) 4194304 minor codes for each
    system exception. Any vendor....
