Bruno, I can not speak for anyone else.  But I have made clear to the 
authors (on list) and the AD (off list) that the current revision of the 
document does not provide what I consider adequate explanation of the 
consequence of the PSP issues.

If progress is such an important concern, then put out NP without PSP, 
and issue a separate document with PSP.  The NP document (quite 
correctly) does not claim to be a complete compilation of all behaviors 
or all flavors.

 From other people's questions about the PSP processing, it seems that 
the text is still not clear about what SID has the PSP flavor (I think I 
know how that is supposed to work, but the degree of accidental 
misinterpretation suggests the document could be better.)

Except one change regarding the processing of the upper layer, that has recently been raised by Chris. Let's see the solution on this.
