Ah, actually, in newfound zeal to be done, I confused this *issue* with an
open ACTION that required the addition of HTTP traces to the draft. Having
added them, I wanted to claim victory on the ACTION and confused it with
this issue. Mea minima culpa.

However, yr comments are in line with mine -- about the need to flesh out
the FROM/FROM NAMED and ambiguous dataset issues -- so I'm happy to second
them (or to be seconded by them, whatever).

I'd like a trace for the spec that uses FROM. I could write traces by
hand, but maybe it's better if they come from actual network interactions?
I'm pretty blaise about this difference, though.

This especially important, IMO.

Fair enough.
