The current text is wordy and repetitive and says things more than once <grin>. Primary focus is to remove repetitive text, tighten remaining text, and consolidate normative statements. 

As an initial example the -05 draft has 3 main sections:
	architectural overview
	functional overview (contains design considerations discussions)
	protocol details
The initial ‘concise’ branch commit moves the functional overview to the appendix. Subsequent commits are resolving normative texts that were in there by moving needed bits back into the protocol discussion. You can follow along via the git repository here:

There was a comment that the design considerations are useful and might be appropriate to keep here or in another document. At the moment I don’t have a formulated position on that.
