Summary: This document is nearly ready for publication as a proposed 

Major issues:
	Should the hash functions identified in 6.1 for hash based filtering 
(BOB, IPSX, CRC-323) have references to their definitions?

Minor issues:
	The tracker does not indicate a document shepherd for this document.

	If compliance is a big issue, then this document is under-specified. 
FOr example, it says in section 5.1 "In order to be compliant with this 
document, at least the Property Match Filtering MUST be implemented." 
However, Property Match Filtering as defined in section 5.1.1 is a range 
of behaviors, so it is unclear which property tests must be supported 
(any, all possible?) in order to be compliant.
