(as individual)

I would suggest that some section for general requirements that aren't
use case specific is created and at least one such requirement is added.

The requirement is the need to support IPv4 only, IPv6 only and
dual-stack deployments as required by our charter. I think this should
be added into the use-case and requirement document for two reasons.
First, that is located next to the other requirements, secondly because
W3C has decided to use our document also, I think it is important that
such a general requirement both on protocols and any address field in
the API handling both address families are covered.
