Here is a last call comment from Jonathan Marsh (jmarsh@microsoft.com) 
on QA Framework : Specifications Guidelines (and Examples and Techniques)
received by the LC form system.

Submitted on behalf of: WS Description WG
Comment type: Substantive
The comment applies to: "Guideline 2 Identify what needs to conform and how. "
Comment title: Loophole in Classes and Categories

Comment:
The checkpoints based on classes of product and categories are awkward, because the use of the existing enumeration is REQUIRED but only if applicable.  That is, the use of the existing enumerations is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL.  The language should reflect that it leaves an enormous loophole for spec authors to ignore the existing lists.


Proposed resolution :
