You clearly cannot, or refuse to, understand what the clauses say. In any case there is no point in continuing what is now a completely irrelevant argument over a twice-superseded document and a paragraph long removed from the OP.
The fact that A cannot require
B to request A do C in no way precludes B from so requesting and A complying with the request. Paragraphs 22.18 and 22.19, unchanged from the original are the ones where this applies.
The later amendment to A3.1 didn't clarify it. It corrected it. Very clumsily in fact - as written it applies only to A3.1. Not to the rest of A3. So making a pig's ear of the whole thing. The heading should be "MAC Broadband Migrations Process Prior to the Harmonisation Date".
As said, we are talking about a twice-superseded document. The Opening Post started with "So far as I can see this September 2014 document is the latest version at the moment" and is clearly inviting correction on that date/link.
Before your rather ungracious correction
I had already found the correct document and was in the process of editing my link and checking/correcting the two page references. I accept you didn't know that, but the tone of your post is the tone of your post.
As a result of your post I added your useful link to the extract, with due acknowledgment. Hardly an ungracious response from me or a hunt to save face.
I posted at 18:25 that I had made those changes, adding at 18:31 the date the document itself had been changed wrt what we are talking about, and acknowledging my mistake
At 18:40 I decided the "interesting discovery" which is precisely what you are quibbling about was no longer relevant to an Opening Post made for the express purpose
, (as it originally said but doesn't need to after that removal), of providing information that other forum users may find useful
As in another recent thread, it is you that is getting heated and dreaming up fanciful things to say, adding in this case gratuitous insults.
I don't automatically hunt around trying to save face
That is exactly what you are doing.
