I am confident that the proposal's authors or the community, in progressing
the proposal, will adequately define the properties that are essential to
the architectural elements of the proposal, and will rule out defining
properties that are not essential.

I'm not attempting to convince anyone of anything. I am attempting to
adequately articulate the technical requirements of commercial video
providers (specifically of Cox, which I believe to be representative of
this market segment) and, where possible, to explain those requirements. If
I can answer any further technical questions about these requirements, I am
more than happy to do so. In some cases, I may be unable to answer certain
questions due to license or business constraints. But I'll respond when I
can and tell you when I can't.
