- S2, I understand that a PAL may be represented as a XML file or a JSON
object, but I note that the underlying semantic content of the resource,
irrespective of representation as shown in Sections 2.1.2 and 2.1.3 is
different.  I suspect that is by design, but could not figure out why the
XML and JSON resource would have different semantic content.

s2.1.2 is XML schema.  There’s no schema in JSON so that’s why there a little 

- S1, top of page 5: What is TA?  The expansion is not defined before being
used here for the first time; I suspect it is "Trust Anchor", but may help
to expand it here rather than in S7.

TA = Trust Anchor - it’s expanded on p4 in the /crls bullet. ;)

- S1.1, "air gap" --- I understand what it means from rfc4949, but someone
not familiar (or too lazy to look up rfc4949 or simply much too younger than
us) may assume that "air gap" refers to "wifi".  Admittedly in 2007 when
rfc4949 was written, 802.11{g,e,n} were just released [1], and only three
years before, in 2004, Economist predicted that the worldwide market for WiFi
devices in 2006 will be 50 million (!) [2].

I don't know that we can do much here, but it was with some chuckle that
the term "air gap" lead me to the statistics I mention above.

Yeah I wondered whether people would know what that was, but I could put in an 
reference reference to 4949 to make sure people know what I mean.
