Will do.

I would think not. This does mean that there is no mechanism to remove slots once they've been created.

Probably by appearance in order of the document.

Using the "%slot" notation.

I believe that what we have in the current proposal is along the lines of what was suggested at the f2f. An alternative would be to use an @ notation to specify slots. We're open to other suggestions as well.

Not at all. There is still time to give feedback and for us to incorporate it.
