I generally support the points raised by Brian, Pete, and Stephen.

It sounds like this document is going to get re-evaluated as a standards
track Applicability Statement. I would suggest that the authors and WG
consider the existing text in light of what is involved in an
Applicability Statement (RFC 2026 Section 3.2) before that re-evaluation
happens. In particular, an Applicability Statement is supposed to
describe how, and under what circumstances, one or more technical
specifications can be applied to support a particular Internet
capability. There are several use cases in this document that provide no
explanation of how the EMAN technical specifications can be applied to
support the use cases, in particular the ones listed in 2.10, 2.11, and

Editorial comment on Section 4.1.3:

"In particular, one of the concepts being considered
        different energy meters based on if the device consumes
        electricity, produces electricity, or is a passive device."
