The restrictions "[replayLogCreationTime] MUST be present
if replay is supported" could be expressed in XML schema, instead
of just documentation. Ditto for "[stopTime] must be used with startTime".

Notification Architecture

We don't have a notification architecture in the IETF.  It's unfortunate
but true and in my book that limits the extent to which the IESG should
constrain notification sub-systems.  We do have two standardized
publish/subscribe/notification mechanisms (SIP and XMPP) and the extent
to which it's a good idea to create additional such mechanisms is
unclear.  While I am not opposed to netconf having a netconf-embedded
notification subsystem despite the redunancy of that subsystem with SIP
& XMPP, it will be important for netconf events to be visible in
general-purpose notification systems.  I don't expect the typical cell
phone to ever have a Netconf client that keeps a connection to the
Netconf server open, but such devices will have SMS, SIP and/or XMPP
clients for general purpose notifications.  I would be a lot more
comfortable with this specification if it at least recognized some of
these events need to be made available outside the Netconf session.
