My vote is "Yes with comments."

A C descriptor has a flag that indicates whether a pointer is or is not 
associated.  It's not always possible to tell.  It is always possible to 
tell whether a pointer is or is not disassociated.

Whenever "type" is used it should be clear whether it's C type or 
Fortran type.  It's not explicit, and therefore not clear, in a few places.

The "sm" component of a CFI_dim_t struct is specified to be measured in 
bytes.  This should be in processor-dependent units.

In the fourth paragraph of the "Assumed-shape, ..." section, shouldn't 
it be possible to deallocate a pointer object?
