The R&O also did not mention the IPAWS profile which presumably will also be a requirement.  So while the R&O may not be followed to the letter, adopting the IPAWS Profile using CAP 1.2 will certainly respect the intent.  I imagine DHS/FEMA could also request an ammendment to the R&O to bring it up-to-date, perhaps filling in some other important details for the broadcast community as well.
