Phillip,
Thanks for the input. Here are the responses/changes:

Re "- should try to cite sources for where BPs come from (include in
references)": 
I will do. This may take some digging back into emails. Going further,
specific citations where applicable will help in the input.

Re "- 5.3.5: "control over application behavior" is a bit generic as BP
title - is there a way to enumerate which exact application behaviors
should be controlable? (the text mentions content update schedules,
memory use, privacy/security options - is that it?)": 
The behaviors mentioned address three specific aspects that the user
should be offered some control over (addressing resource impact, and
usage risks), but there may be others (input is welcome).

Re "- 5.4.2.1: What is "user-agent redirect"? I only know redirect in
HTTP and in HTML - maybe explain?":
It means what you describe. I will reword this for clarity as "Request
redirection (e.g. through HTTP or meta refresh methods)".

Re "- 5.5.4.2: explain what "nested CSS classes" are - I saw the
original mail suggesting this so think I understood, but I'm not sure
this is a well defined term - maybe give the example from the mail
message":
The section was updated based upon Adam's later comments to the original
contribution. Please check in the new version (when uploaded) if it make
better sense.

Re "- 5.5.5: Minimize DOM Manipulation - the title seems to contradict
the "how to do it" section, which explains how to use Javascript to
insert JSON data into a page - which increases DOM manipulation rather
than reduces it, from what I can tell":
This is one for the group to discuss.

Re "- 5.7.2: Retain focus on updates - confusing title - I read it to
mean to keep the focus on the updated part, which is the contrary to
what is meant - maybe say "Don't move the focus on updates"":
Retain means "don't lose", which is one of the effects of moving. But I
changed the title, if that helps.

Re "- some typos and wrong linebreaks after links":
Please point out the specifics.

Re "- font size a little small"
It's the standard for the stylesheet, and as used in other W3C
documents.

Best regards,
Bryan Sullivan | AT&T

Hi,

read through BP2 quickly - a few quick comments:

- should try to cite sources for where BPs come from (include in
references)
- 5.3.5: "control over application behavior" is a bit generic as BP
title - is there a way to enumerate which exact application behaviors
should be controlable? (the text mentions content update schedules,
memory use, privacy/security options - is that it?)
- 5.4.2.1: What is "user-agent redirect"? I only know redirect in HTTP
and in HTML - maybe explain?
- 5.5.4.2: explain what "nested CSS classes" are - I saw the original
mail suggesting this so think I understood, but I'm not sure this is a
well defined term - maybe give the example from the mail message
- 5.5.5: Minimize DOM Manipulation - the title seems to contradict the
"how to do it" section, which explains how to use Javascript to insert
JSON data into a page - which increases DOM manipulation rather than
reduces it, from what I can tell
- 5.7.2: Retain focus on updates - confusing title - I read it to mean
to keep the focus on the updated part, which is the contrary to what is
meant - maybe say "Don't move the focus on updates"
- some typos and wrong linebreaks after links
- font size a little small
