Quite right.

Murray: Read the whole doc. I purposely hid the "how an advanced application might change the request behavior" at the end of the document because 90% of applications will not want to do this, and the procedure for dealing with contexts was confusing people in earlier rounds of this document.

Having said that, if you see bits that should be in section 8 to allow more flexibility for those advanced applications, this is a good time to propose them.
