should more or less be the same save for some modified `type` values, IIRC.

Hey Nikos:

Manu is going to be at the DIF Interoperability WG Wednesday doing an "Ask me anything" session on SL-2021 & RL-2020.  If time zones allow, I'd recommend coming and asking him to say a few words or listening to the recording?  I'll post a link back to this thread after.
