General Comments:

Uncertainties in the ground state energy and width have dominated theoretical studies on 12O (1988Co15, 1997Kr10, 1999Ba03, 1999Sh43, 2001Le22, 2002Gr03, 2003Fo14, 2010Fo08, 2013Fo10, 2014RoZZ). The analog states in 12Be are utilized to gain insight into the expected 12O struture (1999Sh43, 2006Fo11, 2011Fo04). The expected width (≈100 keV) is significantly smaller than experimentally reported widths. The 2He decay is energetically possible and has been discussed in (2001Ba31, 2001Gr29, 2002Gr03, 2002Gr25, 2003Ba99, 2003Fo14, 2006Ca05, 2009Le22).
