I still do not have text about that but, as this is blocking this response since 2 weeks now, I am releasing it as is and will come back to that after I process the other reviews that accumulated during my time traveling around Europe. > > 3.

Even in Figure 2 less significant bits are on the right. So the intent is real tat bit0=0x001, bit1 = 0x002, and so on. All we do is about interoperability, so I added some text that makes that less ambiguous. -- Marc Petit-Huguenin Email: m...@petit-huguenin.org Blog: https://marc.petit-huguenin.org Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/petithug
