The following review of:

    Document title : XML Canonicalization Requirements
    Location       : http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-xml-canonical-req
    Document date  : 1999-06-05

was carried out by the W3C I18N WG and IG.  Any response should be sent to 
the w3c-i18n-ig list.

1.  Section 2, Design Principles and Scope
    --------------------------------------

    Bullet 8 mentions "both use cases".  Where are these use cases described?

2.  Section 3, Requirements
    -----------------------

    Bullet 3 states:

       Canonicalization shall produce byte comparable forms of characters 
       defined by Unicode [Unicode] to be equivalent.

    Surely all byte values are "comparable".  Isn't the usual phrase 
    something like "byte identical".

3.  Section 3, Requirements
    -----------------------

    The above bullet contains the reference "[Unicode]" which is later 
    defined to be Unicode v2.  Strictly speaking, you will have to refer to 
    character equivalence as defined by a precise version of the Unicode 
    Standard, which we assume will be Unicode v3.
