I'm confused about the level of this proposal.  "keywords" seems to
suggest this is about Presentation Syntax.  I assume it's not.  Do you
mean to be constraining the XML?  Or is "keywords" meant in a generic
sense, like "flag" or "indicator"?  

My interest is in making sure the XML for RIF keeps its fallback
properties, and (while I'm somewhat swapped out on this right now) I'm
pretty sure it's important to use a different element name (like eg
<RPR_Group>) instead of an XML attribute (like <Group strat="RPR">).

Also, I think "not be conformance points" means that these other
strategies will not be required of PRD 1.0 implementations.  Is that
