Few comments before I feel comfortable voting.

Section 4.1 is not clear about the connection state.  In some cases 
this will happen before authentication, in that case you can not use 
<registered/> or <remove/>, I think that needs to be more explicit.

Section 5 - I was wondering if we should have some wording about not 
mixing x:data with the predefined fields.  I think this would lead to 
horrid ambiguity and too many OPTIONAL pieces in one area.  Which do 
you fill out?

Section 6 - If my thoughts to Section 5 are agreeable then Section 6 
would probably need to be more tied to Section 5, the original idea 
with x:data was that you would have the in-band info, and then a 
website to go to if that was unusable.
