Dear SLP WG,

Attached please find (and in the CWE under http://tiny.cc/xxvgsw ) my latest version of the content for the Prox-1 Data Link Layer Protocol PICS Proforma Section X9. This content would go into Section X9 General/Major Capabilities section per the yellow book, CCSDS A02.1-Y-3.

What's new here?

  *   I streamlined the text to the minimum necessary to convey the capabilities.
  *   I modified the recommended format of the PICS Proforma in the CCSDS yellow book Annex F, to not include an "mandatory/optional" column. Rather, I added a column called "comments", for amplification of the support column, in case more detail is warrented. Again my opinion is that "mandatory/optional" really only applies in the context of an Enterprise and it's operations. Therefore, I was agnostic about "mandatory" and "optional" as a column attribute, but referenced all the "what statements" and "options" as stated in specification as capabilities for completeness. I really believe this format will be much more useful to our user community, which for the foreseen future is the International Mars Program.

I am sure the discussion on this topic will be continued in Bordeaux in April.
As always, your comments are welcome.

Best regards,
