Legal interpretation is the only one that matters for a legal document, and
at the same time, it is sometimes possible to reframe a legal document to
make more sense to a casual reader in areas that are intuitively unclear.
Asking for legal language changes without being a lawyer or consulting with
one is on the dangerous end of the spectrum... to that old saw "be careful
