    Proposal adopted by consensus at FpML EQD WG Meeting 1400 LDN Fri 07 March 2008 as per branch FpML-5-0-EQD-1 at rev. 3397

    Please see also attached proposal document, but note that element automaticExercise is now optional, as this is specified in MCA

    MTF should study moving content into Exercise abstract base class

    MTF recommends:
    – EQD exercise types should derive from the general shared types (e.g. EquityAmericanExercise from AmericanExercise)
    – If EQD requires changes to the base types to be able to do this, that group should recommend the specific changes that are required.
