Yes, will fix these during publication preparation.

No. This entire section needs to be reworked for each publication. That 
paragraph should explain the current status of *this* document, and 
explain what is expected from the reader. The other paragraphs in this 
section are all boilerplates.

Requirement "D02" and all requirements in the requirements document do 
not apply to the requirements document itself but to EARL 1.0. Since it 
*is* a full-blown specification on REC-track, it needs this requirement.
