Art - not that I am defending NOAA - but the <instruction> element is  
optional in CAP 1.1
so they still are creating valid XML CAP messages? (from a pure  
technical point-of-view).

If, however, you are saying that the <instruction> element plays a  
significant role in CAP,
then perhaps it should have been mandatory? (and with a fixed vocab)
