It’s not an API spec but it does “basically start and end” with the API. It
follows the same approach as
draft-ietf-taps-transports-usage, which also very much “basically starts and
ends” with the API, in how
primitives are derived. Details on this relationship are maybe clearest in the
appendix, where we describe
how to contribute text (in some future version, this should probably be
renamed into “how this document was
