In line with Noah's suggestion of sorting issues, particularly (if I
understand correctly) as to whether they would be invalidated if we
decided to abandon multicast:

    * Rewriting of destinations [1], corrected for loss of formatting in
      [2], discussed in [3], [4].  This is independent of multicast. 
      For example, re-writing can occur with XMPP chat and (IIUC) email
      to a single address.
    * "MEP instance" vs. "MEP" [5].  This is a trivial editorial fix,
      independent of everything.
    * Inconsistency of number of properties [6].  This is independent of
      multicast.  Having separate names for the sender's and the
      receiver's view of the Message appears to make every mention of
      the Message property longer.  As the issue name suggests, it's
      also inconsistent with the treatment of the other two properties.
    * Description of ImmediateDestination [7], discussed in [8].  This
      broke into 4 parts (see following), but I agree that the issue as
      a whole is only an issue in the context of multicast.  If we were
      to abandon multicast, we would instead face a somewhat differently
      formulated set of similar issues.
          o "immediate destination" is not a very informative
            description of ImmediateDestination.
          o material about multicast should be consolidated in section 2.2
          o no need to talk about "multicast group"
          o discussion of "standard means of representing"

In short, the first three issues are worth discussing regardless.  The
fourth could be deferred.
