If I understand correctly, the last part of the last sentence excludes existing protocols from having to explain the variance. What you are proposing is to have designers explain the differences between the architecture and core protocol documents. That presumes that the designers have a good understanding of these documents. The documents are already quite lengthy and I think that we will see more inconsistencies once we go down that path.

Since this seems to be the first document of this type for the IETF, I
suspect it will take some time to perfect the type of language such a
document should have. But we have to start from somewhere and I believe
this is excellent start.

So +1 to Pete's text.

To me, this document doesn't excite me, especially when it *prescribes* about technology not everyone uses.

Now what would really excite me is the a new updated version of the holy bible:

      Requirements for Internet Hosts -- Application and Support
      RFC 1123

That is what help put it all together.
