Hello Charlie,

I've published the today, which 
hopefully took care of the first part of the comments.

The formatting in the Appendix A is a result of xml2rfc way of treating 
the longer URLs. Unfortunately I can not control it, so could not take 
care of it.

On the other hand, hopefully the unusual style of truncation makes it 
understandable that these URLs need concatenating from the pieces, and 
this might be taken care of by the potential users of the XML.

Thanks a lot for the review !

There are no security considerations other than vague concerns over what a buggy existing implementations might do if they see new event types that they don't recognize. This should not be controversial.
