The draft which I submitted this a.m. (-01.txt) uses S-expression format (in 
a move to get compatible with SDSI) and with S-expressions a parameter can 
be either a token (and therefore positionally determined) or an S-expression 
and therefore labelled.  I proposed in the draft allowing designers of new 
<auth> fields to choose their own method of definition.

With luck the draft will be avbl shortly.
