A document like this has a challenge to find the right balance between
well-known vs. possible vs. likely issues. The challenge is exacerbated, for
scenarios that entail some complexity or, as with MLMs, mediation.
I think there are two reasonable ways to find the balance:
1. State principals that are specific to the content of the draft and that give
guidance about the scope and boundaries of what should be covered.
2. Make specific suggestions for specific bits of text in the draft.
