yes, there is room for interpretation there.  However, every group that I
have worked with to date has wanted their dining room to be "public" and
they have not tried to define and limit this in such a way as not to be.  On
the otherhand they wanted other spaces (basement in particular) not to be -
the building inspectors and the access board have all worked WITH, not
against, us on this.
