Point taken regarding hooks from Fetch. It's not clear to me what the best
way to manage that sort of thing is; do you already have ideas about how
you'd like such a hook to look?

Regarding "all in one document", my initial reaction is "Ugh." I'd prefer
to be writing smaller documents, focused on specific topics. In particular,
the public/private distinction as currently described in MIX seems quite
tacked on (because it was). I think tacking CSP on as well would be hard to
clearly explain.
