We identify a small dimensionless parameter ηP associated with the triple Pomeranchon vertex, which governs both the rate of high-mass diffractive dissociation processes and the fine structure in the J-place spectrum near J=1. Theoretical arguments are given that ηP≾1-αP(0), and a possible experiment to measure ηP is discussed. A formula for ηP, based on a multiperipheral model, shows that in such models this parameter does not vanish, and a connection of ηP with a perturbation formalism for the Pomeranchon propagator is suggested.
