Update for the working group:

In addition to an ASN.1 formal notation, the description of the CMS data
structure in a natural language, and two running code, Randy further
highers the barrier by requesting a 'worked example' is also included in
the draft.

Naturally, I immediately got down to work and wrote a 'worked example'
[1], which I shared privately with Randy. Unfortunately this text was
rejected as being unintelligible. Alternative text was not provided.
Thus this worked example will not be included in the draft as it does
not appear to increase readability of the RSC draft.

The trouble with 'worked examples' is that they merely a literary device
and not the real thing.

Kind regards,

Job
