Other than the the message header fields at the wiki page above, is 
there a list somewhere of the fields you'd like to see added to the 
skeleton track? Do you want any of the above fields to be compulsory in 
the next version of Skeleton? It looks like all of those headers would 
be specified in the fisbone packet, which I don't need to change for 
indexing. They also look like they're variable length anyway, so 
including them as message fields makes perfect sense.

I'm trying to nail down a spec for the indexing-related stuff for a 
skeleton 4.0 track, and it would be great if we could produce a unified 
spec with all the changes we both want for a skeleton 4.0 track. :)

All the best,
Chris P.
