Subject: Re: [ubl] UBL 2.0 IDD -- approval of candidate PRD

I think that the points Ken raises are sufficient to justify
rebuilding the package.  Consider the current candidate withdrawn.
I'll aim to have another version out for approval early next week.

In the meantime....  It would be good if everyone who hasn't had a
chance to check out the draft would do so now and let me know of
any further concerns by this weekend.
