Hello Chris,

This is close to satisfactory, but not exactly. RFC 3066 is a BCP,
and its successor is also going to be a BCP, so neither of them
are on the IETF Standards Track (which goes Proposed -> Draft -> Standard).
Your wording is therefore too precise, and you should change it to
the wording in the XML Spec (or something equivalent if you really need to).

Regards,   Martin.
