Does your proposed 'umbrella' document provide any of the following (from your 
reference [3]:

-a roadmap to the documents, including listing them, 
-a global view of this technology, 
-an explanation or rationale for creating this series of documents, 
-a description of each document, 
-terminology that applies across this technology, 
-a description of the relationship among the documents referenced, 
-a conformance clause for this technology, 
-a discussion of the conformance model and/or conformance consequences when 
selecting among these documents, 
-an implementation conformance statement for this technology, or
-a tutorial of this technology?

Thanks and best wishes
Tim Boland NIST
