This draft is ready to be published as Standards Track RFC but I have some comments.


Major issues:


Minor issues:



Nits/editorial comments:

-[Page 19]:


Property: pattern

         Description: A pattern for string matching.  The pattern can

         contain the wildcards * and ?, where * matches any sequence of

         characters (including the empty string) and ? matches exactly

         one character.  The three literals $, * and ? should be escaped

         as $$, $* and $?. All other characters are treated as literals.



Question: The $ character is not described. What does $$ mean if $? is the one character match?



-[Page 20], section 4.1.6, 

"to evaulate"--typo-->"to evaluate"

"is specifed"--typo-->"is specified"


-[Page 24], section



-[Page 50-54], sections 7.1.1 to 7.1.20

"capabilitiy"--typo?-->"capability" (many times)


-General, does the "MI" prefix stand for "Metadata Interface"?
