Per Alexey's Gen-ART review and my own read, Section 9.1 is inconsistent
with Section 5.3. The document says earlier that first and last bits are
reserved. This is not shown in the table at all. What's perhaps causing
the confusion is that there are special values (all 0s and all 1s) that
convey nothing is requested and that everything is requested. This does
not appear to be the same as having two reserved bits. You may want one
or the other or both, but as it stands 9.1 or 5.3 do not seem to be
saying the same thing.

Also, Section 5.3 uses "delimited" when it probably should have said
"terminated", unless there's more substructure in the SOFTWARE_VERSION
string than is identified by the text.
