Dear Joerg,

many thanks for your comments on the SAM baseline draft. We have taken
your comments into account and have made changes to the document as
detailed below (inline with your comments). We have also changed the
document status to Experimental (as per earlier comment by Michael
Welzl). An updated version 04 has been submitted.

Many thanks,
Mario and John
