I think that you probably missed the point on this.

The recommendation out of Munich was to split the text in the Security
document and integrate part of in into the Model document and part of into
the Protocol document, and hence do away with the Security document in the
final editing round.  Your proposal seems to assume that the Security
document will stay.
