  1. Need clarification on 'implementation guide' vs 'standard'. One could argue that "v3" is a constraint on the RIM-standards, and as such is an 'implementation guide for the RIM'. Apparantly there are standards that are based on/constraints on other standards, as well as implementation guides that express constraints on other standards. What are the criteria to decide whether something is an implementation guide or a standard? From a specification-users perspective there is hardly anything that distinguishes a specification that is nominally an 'implementation guide' from one that is nominally a 'standard'. Both are (or: can be) normative..
