Overall I think it looks OK though I share many of the concerns raised 
by Chris Ferris[1].

On the editorial front I would like to recommend redressing the balance 
between MIME and DIME by adding a reference to the SOAP with 
Attachments note[1] rather than just MIME itself. I would also 
recommend that the bibliography entries for WS-Attachments, WS-Security 
and SOAP with Attachments be moved to a new section; "Non-normative 
References" in line with approach taken for parts 1 and 2 of the spec.

On the technical front I wonder whether the spec should require/specify 
support for at least the CID[3] referencing scheme, rather than punting 
this completely to the packaging spec specification. This wouldn't 
preclude a packaging spec introducing additional referencing schemes 
but would provide at least a minimum of functionality common to all 
packaging specs.
