I would like to see some very explicit discussion and reasonably clear consensus 
that answers this question.

By explicit, I mean specification of what details need to be covered that are 
not covered by 5321 (and to help get the consensus, what details in the new 
draft are redundant with which details in 5321.)

It seems to me something close to a absolute rule that the document MUST NOT 
replicate specification already in a standards track document, but rather must 
simply cite it.
