Well, I'm interested to turn them into tests... or at least
motivate collection of some reverse engineering data for us all
to mull over.

My impression is that you took the demos, ran them against several
implementations and then figured out a design to write up.

Maybe I'm just being lazy and I should read the draft more carefully,
but I did try. Actually, I suppose it would be better if
somebody besides Ian could answer my question(s) based on the text
that Ian has written.
