    US/British slant in definitions of terms
Iím sure FIBO is intended to have global relevance, but the set of references and terms are all solidly grounded in US business law. I was hoping to see some awareness of other systems which might have subtly differing definitions. Was this work vetted with financial experts in French, Chinese, Islamic, etc. traditions ñ any of which might define the properties and relations of Agent, Contract, Law, etc. differently than what is here.

    Definitions should have no borders

    Some definitions appear to be based on British interpretations and some on American interpretations. All definitions are being reviewed.
