Yes. I'll see if I can clarify that. I have some text suggesting
more clearly that vendors own their own VSA space. The above text could
a) anything they do in their own VSA space does not require review
b) referencing existing RFCs does not require review
That should be compatible with 3575, I think.

Hmm... maybe "groups of attributes or nested attributes".
