I've just noticed that the terminology section includes "companion device"  
... which can be dropped since it no longer features in the requirements  

Would it also be worth adding a definition for "home network"? I  
appreciate this may be deceptively difficult to define in a way that we  
can all agree on; and perhaps that may be reason enough to exclude it and  
therefore deliberately keep it ambiguous. Here is an attempt though:

"For the purposes of this document, the term "home network" refers to the  
networking infrastructure that facilitates Internet Protocol  
communications between devices within the home. This will typically (but  
not always) consist of a single IP subnet and will typically (but not  
always) be connected to the Internet."
