Hi Tim,

According to the document write-up:

   "The document had 2 reviews from the Apps Review team
    and most of the comments were addressed, although reviewers
    have disagreed with authors on some philosophical points.
    The document was also discussed on the uri-review@ietf.org
    mailing list."

Which points in the review ( 
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/apps-discuss/current/msg02090.html 
) were considered as philosophical points?

>So, what is the purpose of doing apps-area reviews, given that this

I'll leave it to the Application Area Directors to address that question.
