I'm balloting no objection because I agree it is good to get the current state of the WG documented. If this were going to be a set of requirements for future work rather than an input to those discussions then I would have several blocking comments. My most serious concern is with the handling of consent. There seems to be no mechanism proposed to actually allow one party to give consent or to withdraw that consent. In the case of the sender the bypass mechanism may be sufficient. However I don't see how receivers meaningfully manage consent without some standardized mechanism to do so. I'm also concerned about message encryption. At least in the case of content conversion for lemonade, I argued that a mechanism to provide gateways with message encrypting keys seemed important. I'm not sure the same isn't true of OPES.
