And an AAF IS a positive test.  He tested positive to a specified substance ... and is required to prove how it got into his system.  That is a positive test.

 That certainly is the definition of a positive dope test. "Specified" appears to have no relevance.
Were this the case, Froome would have tested positive 20 times during the Vuelta.
Isn't an AAF as defined, here?

The term Adverse Analytical Finding does not necessarily imply a positive test as the athlete may have a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption), an aTUE (Abbreviated Therapeutic Use Exemption) or may have elevated endogenous substances which are normal for his own system and do not necessarily reflect a positive doping infraction.

An AAF becomes a positive doping infraction only after a thorough investigation following due process, such as a hearing and a determination from the Disciplinary Committee that a doping infraction has occurred.

 This is how I currently view things.
