This document looks grossly under specified. I don't even know what mounting
means. It seems to lack many of the things you would need to make it useful
for mounting and unmounting removable storage. I suspect I don't understand
what the document is about. I would be very against the IETF publishing a
document that someone in the WG could not understand what it did.
