Comment #1: Positivity
Curtis W Franks (Sun Feb 14 05:14:40 2016)

I think that the sefinution should explicitly state that this quantity has
at least a connotation of being positive (strictly greater than 0).

Moreover, there may be times when it should actually assume a more general
sense of positiveness. This positiveness maybe should mean being strictly
greater than the identity of a given operation. For example, in
multiplication, being greater than 0 does not mean much, but being greater
than 1 means a lot. So, if only so'u is being multiplied by or with a
number, perhaps it should only refer to quantities that are strictly
greater than 1.
