This is a comment on the Last Call draft of 19 September 2008.

I think it would be useful to add an editorial note to 7.1.6 something
like this:

        Note: The encoding of Unsigned Integers is the same as the
        encoding used in ASN.1 BER for lengths, except that in ASN.1
        the least significant byte appears last rather than first.

An EXI implementer familiar with ASN.1 BER might well miss this
distinction otherwise.
