I think the third sentence of section 3.2 should be flipped around, if

  The addflag action MAY alter the flag list in any way that leaves the
  its semantics as a set of case-insensitive words unaltered.  For
  example, it may reorder the flags, alter the case of the letters in

Hmm, written like that, that chunk probably belongs in section 3 and not
3.2, especially when generallized to cover "setflag" and "removeflag" as


The above also obsoletes the second paragraph of section 6 ("A script
interpreter..."), which seemed oddly placed to me anyway.

As previously suggested - I've removed the section 6.
