I've implemented version -02 in my toolkit Net::DRI

Few minor comments:

- I think it would make sense to work with Alexander Mayrhofer and his
  servicemessage extension, as they seem to have similar targets;
(and semantically, I prefer the term "service message" or some
variation of it - since for example, messages could be delivered by
other means, such as email, so they are not necessarily 100% tied to
the EPP poll operation)

I do believe that the needs you describe above have to be covered by
some EPP extension,
hence I would welcome one document going forward through EPPEXT up to
becoming a standard

- among other things, since you already have a svTRID, an (optional)
  clTRID would be probably useful

- I'm not 100% sure to understand the state attribute, however you
The "state" attribute describes the
   state of the response data or <resData> block returned in the poll

In the first example you write:
The "before" state is reflected in
   the <resData> block:

however the XML snippet has:
   S:      <changePoll:changeData
   S:        xmlns:changePoll="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:changePoll-1.0"
   S:        state="after">

Without this change, the first 2 examples are exactly the same (for
the extension part).
