Subject: Re: [xcbf] Discussion document on XCBF spec

I think given this late date that changes should be kept to a minimum.  What
is there has already been approved for the most part.  Only a few tweaks
describing how the Base64 encoding is to be accomplished should be
necessary.  I think any big changes need to be deferred to the next version.
