I seem to recall that Sanjiva had the rules on a slide and I believed them to be complete and correct, if not formally adopted.

Can we review them at the F2F next week and get them final?

The rules haven't been included yet. My recollection is that at the
last face-to-face we agreed we'd define them in the spec, but that
what we had at the time wasn't quite polished enough, so that we'd
finalize them at the following face-to-face. I can add an editorial
note before section 2.3.1 saying that we're waiting for the "RPC
encoding style" rules to be defined. How does that sound?
