According to CME, this is a new rule, andtherefore the previous petition on which the Commission requested comment is nulland void.We urge that the new proposed rule be rejected, as its objective and substanceviolates Commission rules and the Commodities and Exchange Act (“CEA”). Thisnew rule request fundamentally mistakes the role of a swap data repository (“SDR”)and SDR reporting, as CME fights to have Part 45 requirements for SDR reportingeviscerated.

This is remarkably strong language by DTCC lobbed at the CME! "Fundamentally misunderstands [role of swap data repository]" and "CME fights to have SDR language eviscerated", even claims that the CME "undermines Dodd-Frank" etc. I wonder what is going on with this? The old Options Clearing Corp and NSCC were on very good terms. Clearly, there is sub-text about which I am unaware, for the CME and D
