Yes, certainly. These comments should really have been addressed when we finalized the requirements stage, back in 2009 or so... I'm sure you appreciate that any WG is reluctant to add features (however desirable) at CR stage, especially when it's taken 8 years to reach that stage, and especially when it requires coordination between different specs owned by different WGs to deliver those features.
