Hi Christian,

I really like the approach to keep compatibility to the RFCs and only add 
additional constraints.
I'm trying to read through the KEP, but it's a lot of material and also not so 
easy to understand what is described where.
It seems, that the KEP repeats a lot of information already present in the 
RFCs, only expressing them in RelaxNG. I'm not sure whether this is a good 
idea. Couldn't the KEP be made much shorter by referring as much as possible 
to the RFCs? I got the impression that the RFCs are easier to read and grasp 
then the KEP.

It would also help to see some example XML files. :-)
