The question is what happens if the application does not know how to process EXI, noting that the encryption processing appears to be the same, treating the data as opaque.

Proposed answer,

Yes, the encryption processing is the same, the Type is information for the application. It is application dependent on what to do when it does not explicitly recognize the EXI type, though signaling an error would be recommended.

Possibly add to end of 4.2,  though I'm not sure it is necessary:

"It is application dependent how to process data of various types, or to signal errors in the case of unknown types."

regards, Frederick
