From the comment letter:

"...we recommend that the CFTC clarify that nothing in the Release is intended to limit a designated contract market‘s (DCM"s) ability to list for trading as a contract of sale for future delivery any contract regardless of whether that same contract could be characterized as a swap if traded OTC or on a SEF. We further recommend that the Commission clarify that, for purposes of its proposed anti-evasion rules, a market participant may enter into a transaction or structure an instrument or entity to avoid higher regulatory burdens and attendant costs as long as the transaction or entity has an overriding business purpose."
