Summary: This document is ready for publication as a Proposed

Major issues: N/A

Minor issues:
    Why is the example if section 4 (and others later on) described
"non-normative"?  Is it incomplete?  incorrect?  An example is, by
definition, not a full specification.  The language seems designed to
reduce the value of the example.  I would recommend removing all the
"non-normative" notes from the examples.  They are clearly stated to
be examples.
