Thank you!

Some comments:
Sections 1.2 and 6.6, regarding locating a metadata file. This
document recommends a "-metadata.json" file as the default in the same
directory, however the tabular data model spec, in section 5, provides
a list of options in a specific precedence order. This is the third
option, end of 5.3.

Section 1 - maybe it would make sense to provide a reference to
section 6.6 regarding non-standard CSV here? I would think that
logical step after locating the file in section 1.2 would be to parse
the CSV.

Now I personally like what it says in the primer, but I am not sure if
we need to indicate the conflict here.

Section 1.2, regarding the MIME type - do we need to reference the
IANA registration?

Section 6.6 - regarding RFC 4180 - "However, this is an informational
specification and it's not uncommon for applications to deviate from
it." - I don't know whether this part is true or not since we don't
have any kind of large scale analytics on existing files. Maybe this
can be reworded as "However, this is an informational specification
and not a formal standard. Therefore, applications may deviate from
