Subject: RE: Comments on TA doc v1.0
I understand your concerns, but I've been told that the RegRep spec currently does not have detailed information on the UID/GUID issue, so we've been told to include some of the details in the TA spec. The goal in doing so is to give the RegRep team enough room to further develop the concepts and suggestions outlined in the TA spec.

Well, possibly this has been extensively discussed before I started to
attend the distlists and so my point is simply obsolete.
But I think that in the TA document there should simply be a mention that
refers to a mechanism for granting unique references. This mechanism may
well be UIDs if this has already been decided by the RegRep team.
So, I would imagine a couple of short sentences in a single place to which
all other parts of the document may point.
Just my 2 cents.
