1.  During implementation, there has been some confusion on the "reuse
of structural elements" in section 2.2.  It is clear from the comments
and the MIB that counters cannot be effectively reused.  What appears
confusing is the case when an entire (or partial) DiffServ tree used for
a specific interface ifIndex and direction is reused.  Is the DiffServ
tree in this case just a template such that all of the data path
elements are replicated (counters will not work properly) for another
interface?  This seems reasonable since other data path elements such as
queues and schedulers are clearly interface dependent. It is important
to remove this ambiguity since the RowPointer usage does not prohibit
this "not generally recommended" application.  What is the intent?

2. Minor update in section 3.2.2:
     ' Differentiated Services Code Point ' to
     ' Differentiated Services Code Point, including "any" '

3. Figure 9b in section is somewhat difficult at first to follow
due to how the multiplexing is shown in the Yellow "Count Action" (an
action only has a single input).
