Dave is correct - on Jan 16 we agreed to put the UCs, requirements,  
etc. in a WG Note. Again, I think the highest priority is to document  
this information and I remain mostly indifferent as to whether this  
documentation is captured in a non-normative part of the spec or a  
separate WG Note.

However, since Dave is agreeable to not continuing to edit the  
requirements document my recommendation is to just use the spec.

As Anne mentioned in his reply to this thread [1], our working mode  
is for the Editor to capture inputs, discussions, etc. in an Editor's  
Draft (ED) and for the other WG members to submit comments against  
the ED. In this case, we know Jonas supports the addition of these  
requirements and I also voiced my support for adding them [2]. Thus I  
view Anne's action as being consistent with our current working model.
