Technical Summary

          The document updates existing ASN.1 modules from the 1988
          specification to the 2008 specification.  This involves the
          use of previously defined classes as well as defining some
          new classes.  Some modules are revised from RFC 5911 to deal
          with addition separation that has been found to be required
          through use of these modules.
