[Mpi3-rma] Joint RMA/FT Teleconf

Hi FT Folks,
I was reading on in the proposal and had a few questions/comments:
Is MPI_Win_invalidate collective or local? This isn't clear from the text.
Is the chapter name "Process Fault Tolerance" an improvement over just
"Fault Tolerance." The former seems unnecessarily limiting.
p.545, Advice #1: Ignoring that an advice to users is non-normative,
does this users mean that we /have to/ propagate failure information in
synchronization operations that don't target failed processes? If this
is not the case, how can I find out about failed processes? Is there a
validate or agreement function that could be used to force an update?
If so, that would be better to mention here.
I think I also would prefer to end this advice with "with communication
that targets a failed process."
Thanks for the interesting discussion,
