Location in reviewed document:

As I try to understand the section on data categories, I keep wishing there was more standardization of the text. For instance, in one place we have "Directionality can be expressed with global rules or locally on an individual element." as the second sentence under implementation; elsewhere "Ruby can be expressed locally in a document or with global rules." as the first sentence; elsewhere "This data category can be expressed only in a set of rules. It cannot be expressed as local markup on an individual element." And Language Information doesn't have an Implementation section at all. 

It would be much easier to compare and contrast, but also pick up information if this was expressed in a standard form, eg. first sentence under "Implementation" is always "XXX can be expressed with global rules, or locally on an individual element.", or, in the case like the third above "XXX can only be expressed locally on an individual element."

Other similar standardisations could be applied to section 6.
