Dan, thanks for the work.

*THIS* document is not intended to be published.  It remains an ID to be
copied.  I would have hoped the context for this advance review would
have been communicated better....

The idea is that current and future Applicability statements will use
the table of contents provided.   So, before secdir is asked to review
the security implications of a "real" document, we want to figure out
what major sections might be *missing* from the table of contents.

So I will attempt to fill in the Introduction with an actual
Introduction to explain this document.

Here are two example applicability statements which we are trying to get
into this format.  

http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-brandt-roll-rpl-applicability-home-building/
http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-phinney-roll-rpl-industrial-applicability/

If I have my way, many of these documents will be further reduced in
scope, resulting in many more than our originally chartered four such
documents.
