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

The document is currently inconsistent, Ed.  Do we intend CXER encoding 
for everything excpet DER, or use of basic XER at the outer-level?

I think minimum changes mean we do everything with CXER (and DER), and 
remove any text that implies the opposite - probably only a sentence or 
two, at most.

I will produce a document to that effect in the next few days.
