Dear WG,

These are my personal comment on the XML Protocol Requirements
document recently published.

R700b: This seems to be thinking only about indepenent extensions.
     Despite trying hard, in many cases extensions are not independent.
     It should be possible to express e.g. that the message is
     successful if either extensions A and B OR extensions C and D
     are known. This can not be expressed with a simple mandatory/
     optional distinction.
     The requirement should make clear what combinations are
     needed, and should include combinations as described above.

R301: Glad to see that clarity is required for all of the spec,
     including normative reference material.

- There should be some explanation of why the Rnnn numbers are
   quite disordered.
- R503: "XML Activities": There is only one XML Activity.
- DR0053 -> DR053.
- Just after R811: 'two core requirements': this is followed
   by three requirements (R806, R808, R802). The presentation
   should be improved to make clear that the two are r806 and
   r808, and r802 is separate.

Regards,   Martin.
