The text of the proposed amendment is available at

Regarding duplicate name tokens in attribute definition lists, it says:

   "The current restriction on duplicate name token ("enum") values for
   attributes in the same set of attribute definitions is removed.
   Minimization by omitting the attribute name is possible only for values
   that occur for only one attribute in the set of attribute definitions."
