A stray suggestion to the Military Justice Review Group

Since the Pentagon's Military Justice Review Group website does not show comments and suggestions that the group receives, here is one your humble editor has just submitted:
Given the maturation of the court-martial trial process, including development of the role of the military judge, shouldn’t review by the Courts of Criminal Appeals be governed by the same standards as apply to appellate review of trials of criminal cases in the district courts? The last sentence of Article 66(c) seems to be another of the artifacts in the Code that have been overtaken by events and can now be dispensed with.
Have you submitted something? If so, please post it here using the Comment feature.
