Hi Curran,

Many thanks for your comments. The editorial suggestions will be addressed.

I wanted to respond to a couple of your non-editorial points:

It is possible to attach at the slice level, indeed that's a key usage, 
so I agree the wording needs to be cleaned up. Reviewing and at least 
clarifying the abbreviation mechanism is something we intended to 
address before reaching Last Call.

Yes, as things stand that's correct.

Correct. That's been fixed in the actual vocabulary but needs fixing in 
the document.

Cheers,
Dave
