You are welcome! I certainly agree concerning the encrypted packets. I will look into what can be done with this (custom component builds, of course).

Thankyou very much.

One note I would make about the packet dumps, which form the majority of this document is that while the cleartext headers are specified in incredible detail, they provide little information.  At the same time, the actually useful parts are still encrypted.

Perhaps these could be reversed, with the headers excluded (if an implementer can't understand the headers, they should look at the right RPC doc) but the payload in the clear.  This would save space, paper and provide more useful information.
