9Internet2 proposal for a section on 'deployment considerations':   This has not been implemented.  Most of the recommendations are good practice guidelines for doing federated access and are NOT specific to the R&S Entity Category so should be addressed elsewhere.  A new section on 'attribute request' has been added to address the issues raised in this section about SP behaviour.
10Internet2 Internet2 proposal for a section on 'normative statements': section is only required if the the REFEDS proposal seeks to control the behaviour of ALL R&S like entity categories AND propose its own implementation of it.  I would suggest that we ONLY want to seek to control the REFEDS R&S Entity Category,  so this section is not needed.  For discussion.
