Your point is well taken and your suggestions are good. Though we have 
decided to go further without modifications of the content BUT we will 
work in the next stage (a very long CR phase) at the refinement and 
improvement of this specifications. We want to tune that we have 
written. We want to make it appealing for all WGs.

But for this goal, we need time and we need to work closely with other 
WGs to try to capture the essence of their work. We will cook a better 
specifications if we can taste the sauce closely with the people in the 
kitchen. It's why we need this long CR phase.

Thank you very much for your valuable comments.
