***I suspect it may have to do with the seasons being reversed in the
Southern Hemisphere.  So perhaps their intention is to alert we
northerners that summer in the south is winter to us.  As far as MFHL is
concerned, I would say that once it's bound you won't have to worry if you
are compressing holdings, and for the current issue statement, the standard
seems to indicate that you use what's on the piece.  SO I'd say
no.21 (1991:Summer South)  (we decided to cap all seasons).
