> weak. It has a significant section that describes an abstract 
> functional and information architecture, but this plays no part in 
> "conformance".  It discusses interoperable OAIS archives, but misses 
> the opportunity, by making modest improvements to the "functional and 
> information architecture" to provide even an abstract framework for 
> understanding how to create such systems.
