I support adoption of this draft.

The document already describes the advantages (just concatenate together 
= easy) and disadvantages (no end-of-sequence indicator, and if a data 
item is corrupted then it is not possible to reliably decode the rest of 
the sequence) of its approach, which is good. I believe that the 
document should point out alternate ways to encode sequences (without 
specifying them, just naming/identifying alternate approaches).
