I assume we mean "deictic dates" and, in this case, I would suggest to use

of "nearly-deicitc" but "non-diectic" thing we mean here.
The syntax used for the season qualifier in the annex does not match the
syntax we agreed upon and which is used in #331.
- The expression "a profile of and an extension to" reminds me of "narrowed extended".
