           Summary: Eventing: we never really define "format"
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: LC
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P2
         Component: Eventing
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: dug@us.ibm.com
         QAContact: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org


Section 2.3 of eventing starts with:
---
2.3 Notification Formats

This specification specifies two delivery formats: wrapped and unwrapped. Use
of wrapped format indicates that notification messages MUST be contained in a
wrapper element defined by this specification. Use of unwrapped format
indicates that notification messages are not contained in a wrapper element. 
---

We never really define what "format" means.  Sometimes formatting implies
things like encoding and that's not really what we're talking about here.

Proposal:
add an intro sentence that says something like:
---
This specification does not mandate how events are serialized into
notification messages. Rather, within the Subscribe request message
a subscriber can specify a "Format" that indicates the set of rules
that MUST be followed when constructing notification messages.
