Hey Debbie,

I am not sure if this really removes my problems with the interpretation
of the specification. Although it is considered to be at risk of
removal, the specification should be clear about the intention. Maybe,
you should add that the implementation is application specific. I really
miss that in the specification.
Also, I am not sure if all those possible behaviors (I mentioned some
possible interpretations in my first email) can be toggled by a simple
switch. Especially, if you want to support more than one of those
behaviors at the same time.

>From that point of view this solution is not acceptable, sorry.

Maybe, adding that hint that the interpretation of the confidential is
application specific and further hints can be submitted in the data
field could help to overcome this weakness. As a consequence the hint
about logging should be removed since this is only one possible
interpretation. Maybe, it could still serve as an example?
