These represent 55 set requests added to the Register under "A" and "B" which are absolutely empty. None are marked "new" or "updated."

I'm sure the list from C-Z of requested sets with nothing in them would be quite long. Here's my question: Why request a set, then put nothing in it? Are people requesting sets they themselves have no intention of dealing with? If so, Why? Think of how much time and effort was wasted in creating these 55 empties -- and that's just under A and B. There are hundreds of other empties as well.

The moral of the story is this: request sets, by all means, but don't waste everybody's time by having sets created that you yourself aren't interested in. Without a doubt this would cut the set creation time down dramatically. Food for thought.
