If that's the implication, I also don't like that sentence. However, I 
was reading it as a simple statement of fact. If I remember correctly, 
the current draft does not mention all the new characters explicitly, 
and I think it would be a good idea to mention them explicitly, as Mark 
has proposed (but in a slightly different wording that makes sure the 
above implication is less probable).

Regards,   Martin.
