Hi Dr. Zhang,
Thank you very much for your comments! With respect to the spec, you're right, I was mostly working from publications and not directly from that spec. I'll take a look at it and try to make any necessary updates.
With respect to the second item, thanks for the pointer to the panel report. It will be interesting to see your other forthcoming report, too. I definitely have the sense that NDN could support these cases.
