What I read this to say is that as many parameters of the envelope as possible
should be defined as optional, so that two parties who have a prior agreement on
a given parameter's value should not have to explicitly include the value in the
envelope just to be compliant with the protocol.

Anyway, that's what I read it to say; assuming I understood it correctly, I
suppose it could stand re-wording, but I think it's reasonably clear.
