Great job Steve!


The way that it is written (covering Security, Model, Directory, and
Protocol) makes me think that it is most definitely a stand alone document. 
If you had
only done section 4 I would see that being wrapped into the Protocol
document.  It looks like a great FYI RFC.


As per your request about attributes and parameters:


You wrote:


-----------------------
          A fully encoded request/response has a version number, an
          operation (for a request) or a status (for a response),
          associated parameters which are encoded Model data and,
          optionally, print data following the Model data.
 
          [ISSUE: what should be said about Parameters and Attributes]
-----------------------


I would change it to:
-----------------------
          A fully encoded request/response has a version number, an
          operation (for a request) or a status (for a response), an
optional
          staus message, 
          associated parameters which are encoded Model data (and,
          optionally), print data following the Model data.  The operation
          requests contain input parameters and the responses contain
          output parameters.   Some of the operation parameters contain
          sets if attributes and their values.
-----------------------


I might have other comments later, but it looks great after a first cursory
read.
