The Relax NG specification really does need a reference that would help
identify the correct base specification. I think you could use an OASIS 
URL, but I would prefer the ISO number.

5.1.  Extensibility

   The original vCard format is extensible.  New properties, parameters,
   data types and values (collectively known as vCard objects) can be
   registered with IANA.  It is expected that these vCard extensions
   will also specify extensions to the XML format described in this
   document.

I think that this paragraph refers to the procedure described in Section 10.2 of http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-vcarddav-vcardrev-21.txt for registering new vCard elements. I beleieve that an explicit reference would be useful. Also, why are the vCard extensions called 'objects' in this document and 'elements' in the other? Also just saying 'can be registered with IANA' is somehow mis-leading (especially in the absence of the reference) as this is no routine IANA registration, but a procedure that requires a standards-track RFC in some cases.

1) I did not validate Appendix A. Has this had independent validation by, say, the XML directorate?

  The Security Considerations say:

    All the security considerations applicable to plain vCard
    [I-D.ietf-vcarddav-vcardrev] are applicable to this document
    as well.

  This is completely correct; however, the use of XML digital
  signature and XML encryption are appropriate security mechanisms
  in this situation, while these mechanisms are not appropriate for
  a plain vCard.  This seems worthy of mention.
