| Hmmm, now I understand why the prose was vague. 

Well, the prose was vague simply because I didn't write very well. :)

| Could keep the "lack of rigour" and "suitable foundations" language
| or say something like:
| "Implementation experience has given rise to differing opinions on
| parts of ISO 13250. One goal of this revision is remove any alleged
| ambiguities or other causes for such differing opinions."
| Factually accurate to say there are differing opinions but suggested
| prose neither confirms nor denies the validity of any of the
| "differing opinions."

I've been thinking about the feedback I've gotten and come to the
conclusion that the problem really is that the document is too brief.
I think I need to expand the text to make it more understandable, and
your proposal gives me a good way to explain this particular part,
because the problem really is as you describe it.
