The security spec has undergone some pretty serious changes as the
result of about 6 hours of live editing.  Some things we did were to
standardize the format to match the rest of the cgl specs, remove all
1st person/2nd person comments, tweak some of the requirements to be
more specific, table-ize many of the items that could have been in
tables, and bulletize many of the bullet-able things.  Both Joseph and
Mike provided their input on these efforts and had override authority
over john/I wanting to make the spec have one voice with the remaining

If you want the latest version, its in the cgl specs group at
groups.osdl.org or I can mail you a copy.  We hope to have it finalized
by Wednesday.  Also, it really wont work in OO because OO is missing
some key features we require for a document of this type.  As much as I
dislike having to use windows, there really is little choice when
working on these sorts of documents..
