Your EEP draft is now committed as:
EEP 39: Scoped Group Leaders
Thank you for your contribution to the Erlang Enhancement Process.
A texual comment on the last sentence in this paragraph:
Every process is given a "dictionary" of group leaders, with one
`io` group leader defined by default, representing the only group
leader that exists currently in Erlang. Every process created is
given a copy of the dictionary exactly as before.
I think it is a bit fuzzy what "copy of the dictionary exactly as
before" means. My guess is that every process created starts with
a dictionary that is copied from its spawning parent exactly
as the group leader is inherited today.
