I have no objections.  (I'd have been tempted to put it a tad later, in 
the PRELIMINARIES section, where we used to have the ANSI requirement 
explicitly listed, along with the anticipated disk space requirements.  
But that's a tiny detail, not worth worrying about now.  Where you have 
put it is fine.)
