Waldemar, thanks for the great notes. One quick comment on the binary data notes:

We briefly discussed bignums as a realistic alternative, where equality would be based on numeric value rather than object identity. But for now we'll try to keep the binary data spec as orthogonal as possible from a bignums proposal.
