Here is a last call comment from Lofton Henderson (lofton@rockynet.com) 
on QA Framework : Specifications Guidelines (and Examples and Techniques)
received by the LC form system.

Submitted on behalf of: N/A
Comment type: Substantive
The comment applies to: "Guideline 1 Define Scope."
Comment title: SpecGL fails checkpoints 1.2 and 1.3

Comment:
[This is really a comment about the "Introduction" section.]

"Specification Guidelines" (SpecGL) fails its own Checkpoints 1.2 (priority 2) and 1.3 (priority 3), by not illustrating its scope with examples and/or use cases, and not providing usage scenarios:

Alternatives:

1.) Add examples and/or use cases, and provide usage scenarios;
2.) No need to, these are "not applicable" to SpecGL;
3.) No need to, SpecGL only needs to conform to itself at level "A-Conforming" (only priority 1 checkpoints).

While I believe that alternative #1 is the correct alternative, it might be helpful for SpecGL to explain its intentions about self-conformance (p1 or p2 or p3?).  I.e., should SpecGL contain a SpecGL conformance claim?

Proposed resolution : 
Alternative #1.
