Of all of the responses to this, I get the impression that no-one
objected to my modifications as such. The objections raised in the
threads beneath my proposal were more general and could equally be said
of the YADIS spec as it stands on the site at the moment.

With all that said, then, does anyone have any objection to my altering
of the spec on the site to reflect my proposed changes?

With the mechanism for finding the capability document sorted, we can
then move on to the next fun step which is deciding what format the
capability document should be in.
