agreed, this info should be added to the bindings and profiles that are
specified in the bindings-model doc itself.

agreed. And so they will  need to get updated with each rev of the doc, as has
to be done with such refs in core-xx, and all will need to get done once and
for all once we emerge successfully from Last Call and prepare the "committee
specification" maturity level docs.

I agree it ought to be security-services-comment. A wrinkle to that list is
that by default it is only-subscribers-can-post, but anyone-may-subscribe. We
will need to put together canonical text to describe this since it's likely
we'll be referencing the comment lists from both doc cover pages and within
docs (as here in bindings).
