    We understand that the nature of the problem being addressed may require the complexity built in to this standard - but have concerns about how difficult it may make building implementations. Perhaps a non-normative implementation guide could be created to assist implementer's in building implementations since the sheer size and complexity of the standard may make that difficult by just using the standards document itself
