              All non import-only modules of the schema are implemented
              with their associated features and deviations.

Modules in module-set/module are modules a datastore referencing the
module set implements, modules in module-set/import-only-module are
modules a datastore referencing the module set only imports from.

A module set is a self contained set of modules and import only modules.

Perhaps 'which is commonly a superset'. But note that the point 3 in
the objectives also covers any future datastores such as ephemeral
datastores what may have data models that do not relate to
<operational>.

> 4.       Also I feel the text about "netconf-capability-change" notification based on yang-library checksum should be moved to the NETCONF NMDA draft.  Is it not more suitable there ?

The reason is that NMDA is a very generic architectural document and
as such it should not detail specifics of concrete notifications.
These details belong into the specific documents. The NMDA document is
a root of a document dependency tree, we should not create a mesh of
document dependencies.
