I have reviewed this document in preparation for IETF LC.  Thanks for a
clearly written document!  I especially liked the style of the Terminology
section.  I've requested LC, and a few comments to address along with any
LC comments are below.


Some of the values in Section 8.2 have internal colons, which seems like
you're actually defining two things.  But it's not meaningful to remove the
final label.  Should these use a different separator?

In 8.2.6, do you want a language tag instead of a country?

It seems like the tables in 9.2.* could be collapsed into one.

It's not clear to me why you need all the date machinery in provider IDs.
 This things are ephemeral -- why not just use the org that has the domain

Section 13 says that the UA MUST provide a "reasonable rendering".   How do
I tell if a UA meets that criterion?  Might be better to add in Section 11
a requirement of the form, "if a UA cannot process the set of Alert URNs in
a message, then it MUST still provide some alert (chosen by local policy).
 Failure to parse Alert URNs MUST NOT cause a UA not to alert at a all."
