I don't see anything wrong in having a groups (DAP) requirements in one single document. But, anyway in this case I suggest to remove (expired??) this document completely not shelved. If shelved then it is creating confusion i.e requirement document is shelved bcz group thinks it is not needed whereas Messaging API is shelved bcz group is working on something else which works better.

It has not been updated or edited in a very long time, and is completely out of date. As such, it needs to be either removed, or (as you suggest) updated.

Last the group discussed this we reached agreement that we did not see the point in a single requirements document for all of our deliverables. These tend to be orthogonal in what the aim to achieve, and therefore their requirements should be documented individually (in the specifications themselves), without being muddied by mixing them all together.
