I have received a reply from drums about changes to ABNF. Some of
these changes affect our documents.


The changes are (for draft 3):


1) ranges are now specified with a hyphen, e.g. %x41-5A


2) ranges cannot be used with strings, e.g. 
     ALPHA = "A"-"Z"  is no longer allowed, 
  instead one must use
     ALPHA =  %x41-5A / %x61-7A   ; A-Z / a-z


3) the list notation with "#" no longer exists.
