Dear Brian and everybody,

this is a good reading indeed.  Bonus points: it may be in the public
domain: it is a work of a U.S. governmental agency and contains a
statement that it is not subject to copyright, although it follows
a confusing statement for nongovernmental uses.

    This guideline has been prepared for use by Federal agencies. It may be
    used by nongovernmental organizations on a voluntary basis and is not subject
    to copyright, though attribution is desired.

I have added the link to our wiki in its "Cloud" page.

Have a nice Sunday,
