Hi Roger,

great stuff. I'll look over it in more detail, but from my
first skim over it looks very comprehensive.

One little thing that may be worth mentioning/stressing in
the document is the fact that all techniques are only
*informative*, and also that the techniques document is not
meant to be an exhaustive list (i.e. there's scope to come
up with many more solutions for a particular technology
which still address the actual SC, but aren't listed in the
tech document itself).
