In the table at:
There is a row that shows that a ContentDelivery can be sent with BusinessRefID pointing to an RFQ; this would be content delivered prior to a PurchaseOrder. However, that functionality is not supported in the spec currently.
Not only should this flow be described in a paragraph in section 3.3 ContentDelivery, but RFQ should also be added to the "References:" list for ContentDelivery.
It is possible that other places should be updated now that this new flow exists...
A ContentDelivery allows the Print Buyer to upload any type of content to the Print Provider, e.g. PDF files, variable data
lists, barcodes etc.
The Request/@BusinessRefID of the ContentDelivery Business Object references SHALL reference the order’s PurchaseOrderif a PurchaseOrder has been sent.. The order’s
PurchaseOrder is either the initial PurchaseOrder if no Change Orders have occurred, or the latest accepted PurchaseOrder
if a Change Order has been made. If the content is delivered while an RFQ is pending, the RFQ SHALL be referenced.
Flow: Print Buyer to Print Provider

In most cases, content will be delivered after the Print Provider has sent a PurchaseOrder. Content can also be delivered prior to a purchase order in an established business relationship.

Section 5.1.5 PrintTalk Packaging for details how the content MAY be packaged in a single request.
The Print Provider SHOULD check the files and SHALL send a ContentDeliveryResponse that references the
ContentDelivery and contains a report of the content check and the completeness of the job.
5.8.2 Content delivery prior to a PurchaseOrder
If a Print Buyer wants to provide content prior to finalizing the business agreement with a PurchaseOrder, it MAY send ContentDelivery business objects that reference an RFQ.
