LH>Do you have any comments, issues, or feedback about SpecGL 20021108,
>as a consequence of your review?

By far the most obvious thing was that issues of navigation and
discovery were under-represented in the checkpoints. The discretionary
items are only detectable by a thorough reading of the entire document,
and the "Conformance" chapter says nothing about them.

LH>One thing caught my attention:
>"Checkpoint 13.2. Distinguish normative and informative text....
DM>Informative material is distinguished. Most examples are not marked
DM>and can be presumed from the context to be normative."
LH>Is that a typo, "normative"?

Surprisingly, no. If you look at the examples in context, the typical
presentation is: given this, it must do that. In other words, they are
more like test assertions.
