I think a high priority is to get useful information and as such, I  
am willing to take just about anything you can provide.

If by format you mean text vs HTML vs PDF, etc., my preference in  
order is HTML, text, PDF.

If by format you mean should we follow the pattern we used in widgets- 
reqs [1], or OWL [2], or some other methodology (e.g. [3]), I am  
mostly indifferent and again come back to the point of getting useful  
info. I don't think you should feel constrained to "shoehorn" your  
information into the relatively constrained pattern we used in [1]  
nor should you feel obligated to do something comprehensive (e.g.  
[3]). Perhaps the OWL pattern is an acceptable middle ground.

BTW, +1 to Arve's suggestion for a separate thread per UC.
