In addition to the problems that you describe, when viewing a doc with 
change marks, it poses a similar problem. The change mark colors 
sometimes are the same as the 2119 highlighting.
Another suggestion would be to use a different font/italics or both 
greying of the background and font/italics.

Operator error, fixed it in rev4.

I agree that it is the latter.
I think the target of the 2119 statement is incorrect. Plus, I don't 
think it should contain a 'MAY'. This is no different than an optional 
element and we should just change this to "An SCA WS Binding XML 
document can provide addtional ..." and remove [BWS20031].

Since this is not an ed. change, I've not made it in rev4.

+1 to raising an issue.

I'm not so sure of this.
What if there are two intents that on their own do not conflict with the 
config, but when taken together do conflict with the config. I don't 
have an example of such a scenario, but want to make sure that something 
like this cannot happen.

Seems fine to me. But will wait for TC decision to make any changes.
