Not sure if this is the correct way to comment but there is no note
where to send comments to so I just replied to the lists. (Maybe put a
note where to comment in the draft text)

I have a slight irritation when reading 3c) I understand that you are
not allowed to refer to a fork or somesort of extension (like for e.g.
SVK) as a successor of subversion but the example you are giving
confuses me. The example does not designate a successor but simply
states the fact that the software is kind of like a Subversion 2.0. This
does not mean that it claims to be the designated successor. It might be
better to leaf off the example in order not to confuse anybody or state
a different example.

Stefan
