Hi Sebastian,

It's strongly related to [MS-WINSRA] (which is part of WSPP)
and I'd really like to be able to ask for CARs on [MS-RAIW].

I also think that a document is required that specifies the
implementation details of Microsoft WINS Servers.
As RFC 1001 and 1002 have not all information.

For me it's really important to have the relations between the 3
protocols documented in detail.

Currently the time stamp handling of name records is the
most critical thing for me, that's not documented in detail.

But it's good to have the [MS-RAIW] public is much better than nothing.
