Unless and until you put something in that document stating what 
requirements it is intended to address, you will continue to cause such 
confusion. At the VERY LEAST, you should contain a reference to another 
document that says what your mandate is and why it was set up.

I remain completely in the dark about why you are attempting what you are
trying to do, which makes it very hard to comment effectively.  And please
note that I asked for the reasons and not a summary of your approach, which
I can reverse engineer from N1761.
