Jim, thanks for the comments.
Section 1.1 bullet 7 and bullet 9 seem redundant
I think they are slightly different. Bullet 7 says that you can get
results without updating the clients. Bullet 9 says you don't have to
update all your MTAs at once.
Part of the problem is that I read "incrementally" and "independently"

DKIM seeks to preserve the positive aspects of the current email
infrastructure, such as the ability for anyone to communicate with
anyone else without introduction.
Section 3.1 The INFORMATIVE IMPLEMENTERS' NOTE seems like it would

I couldn't quite get this to flow very well. It doesn't belong under
"Textual Representation" or "DNS binding" because the point is
independent of how the record is represented or delivered. It just
doesn't seem to "fit" in the overview. Perhaps I'm missing something.
I'm not sure of the solution to this either. It just seemed like it was

right after having introduced the concept of selectors themselves.
NOTE WELL: This list operates according to
