Last night I published a new draft on use cases for IRS. Please read and
send comments!


Several points to consider:

1. I've left all references out at the moment. I suspect this text is
going to be changing a good bit; putting references in at this early of
a stage invites reference mismatches through major text revisions.

2. I've left out a couple of suggested use cases. I think we need to
focus on use cases that reach beyond currently available mechanisms, and
show interaction between multiple pieces of an overall system.

3. I've worded some summary points in requirements language,
specifically using SHOULD in a couple of places. We need to think about
whether or not these types of references are "proper" in a use cases
draft of this sort.

4. The text is probably still rough around the edges --I've focused more
on the justification for the work in the introduction than on the actual
text of the use cases. I'm certain the text in the actual use cases will
harden as we get comments and edit those sections.

Again, please read and make comments!
