In section 7.2 now the 'hold' attribute is both defined in the list of
attributes that MUST be present and the list of attributes that SHOULD
be present.

What attributes should be on which list was discussed on summit #13, see
also (for a very short summary):

Proposed fix:
Remove the 'hold' that is on the MUST-list and move 'requests' from the
SHOULD-list to the MUST-list.
(This also fixes the still open issue: "Session Creation Attributes Too

Then for the overview the issues that were discussed at summit #13 and
that are still open in 1.11rc2:
