Some comments/questions/thoughts on 
https://www.w3.org/wiki/Socialwg/Social_API/Requirements

I'm happy to put these on the wiki, but right now it's probably best to 
have a quick discussion here.

- What is an "Enterprise Document"?

- missing? Formatted text, eg bold, in text

- missing? special link elements in text, especially "mentions" of other 
users.   Some things, like URLs, can be automatically pulled out of 
plain text, but facebook-style mentions of users can't.

- missing? ability to see that text was modified after first posting, 
maybe which versions others are commenting on

- missing? app data in profiles / extensibility of profiles

- what are "groups" as opposed to "contact lists"?   It looks like 
groups are add-yourself, and contact-lists are add-other people, but 
there's the common middle ground of request-to-be-added, right?  And 
both kinds have access control issues.

- missing? setting who can see which things

- Can you justify most of the out-of-scope stuff?   Without streaming or 
push, I don't see how this system could catch on.

Thanks!
