Number CP 1.1
Issue: Where does "beginning of the document" refers to.
Discussion: be more precise
Decision: Replace ConfReq with the TA.

Number: CP 1.2
Issue: examples or use cases or a mixture of both? within the spec or a link?
Discussion:  The intent is that any combination is allowed - we really 
mean, and/or.
"provide" is linked to its definition - allowing for inclusion within the 
spec or a link from the spec.
Decision: Change ConfReq to be "and/or".  Nothing needs to be done with 
respect to "provide".

Discussion: separate from 2.1 so that if fail 2.1, can still pass 2.2

         Number CP 2.4 and applicable to other CPs
         Issue: not applicability statement
         Discussion: can we remove this statement by rewriting the ConfReq, 
e.g., "If the spec addresses more than 1 COP, then..." Yes, but loses 
readability and simplicity. Could create a label, (e.g., Exceptions, 
Normative inclusions/exclusions (UAAG uses), Applicability) which would be 
included in every CP to handle exceptions - e.g., no exceptions, except if 
only 1 COP
         Decision: None yet.
