We discuss, in more detail, the conormal progressing waves constructed by J. M. Bony [Semin. Goulaouic-Meyer-Schwartz, Equations Deriv. Partielles 1981-1982, Expose No.2, 11 p. (1982; Zbl 0498.35017)]. The goal is to show that if the wave (\(\equiv\) solution) is classical in the past, it remains so in the future. Given a certain minimal regularity this is true provided the notion of classicality is slightly extended so as to yield a class closed under nonlinear functions.
