I have small issue I would like to discuss before recommending approval of this document:


2.  The set-key attribute

   As above, this structure may be expanded at a later date with
   additional types.  Implementations SHOULD gracefully handle values
   and types which they do not recognize.

How can the SHOULD be satisfied in an interoperable way? By ignoring them?

How is extensibility going to work in a general case? Handling of a union versa handling of an intersection are going to produce quite different results.
