Subject: Updated Requirements and New Related Tech docs

XRI TC Members,

I just uploaded the third draft of the XRI Requirements and Glossary
document and a first draft of the new XRI Overview of Related Technologies
document. We will discuss both further on today's TC call, but a new notes
in case you miss the call:

* Because we did some major reorganizations, this version didn't use
revision marks. Both documents are clean versions.

* We separated out what had been the Related Technologies section into a
