Hello Brian,

Thanks a lot for your sharing on thoughts on the spec.

Recently, Docs team added a paragraph for new contributors with English 
as a second language [1],
but the perspective you are asking is something different from [1] I think.

For me, it seems that the paragraph does not clearly answer the question
"How do you identify a producer or consumer?".
In my opinion, the purpose of the detail description on this paragraph 
is to recall more thoughts
with 'project ID' and 'user ID', and when I first see the title 
(question), I expect such as
  "There are several approaches which help users to identify a producer 
or consumer".
  "The first is ..., which .... It is useful when ... However, there can 
be a problem when...".
  "The other possible approach can be ... It really solves the problem 
in the first approach by ...
   However, there may be still some problems on ...".
Then, I try to relate those two approaches I think into 'project ID' and 
'user ID', but it is a little bit
difficult for me to map into those two approaches with the details, 
advantages, and disadvantages.

This is just my thought from my brief review when I read the spec, and I 
hope that
more I18n team members and also Docs team contributors help better 
description for readers with English as Second Language.

With many thanks,
