Let me comment on them.

CZ - this is actually just typo found by John recently, simple editorial fix

JP-001 - I think that this comment is resolved by adding sentence
proposed by John during the last telcon

JP-002 - This is misunderstanding on the commenter side caused by ISO
style guide. If you look at ISO version of document
you will see that in the table word "unspecified" is show in the same
typeface as "application/xml". But "application/xml" is here concrete
MIME type and "unspecified" just says that given pseudo-attribute is not
used. W3C version of document uses different fonts so it is clear what
is meant and that "unspecified" is not special keyword or value for
pseudo-attribute. I will try to change fonts used in the table to match
W3C version to make distinction clear.

JP-003 - This is just related to different style guide used for ISO
standards. There is nothing we can do about this at XML Core WG. I think
that it is very likely that this comment will not result in any change
because ITTF (body which is responsible for publication of IS) was OK
with the current DIS text. If some change is really necessary it should
be sufficient just to editorially extract (only in ISO version) parts of
section "Conformance requirements" into separate "Terms and Definitions"

So for W3C version of xml-model only first two comments are interesting,
rest is just style issue in ISO version.
