Just a small typo/grammar correction I think.
"The installed system must be able to appropriately install, remove,
just moved the 'to' infront of appropriately.. Apologies if that's a
dumb thing to nit-pick. Otherwise looks good to me.
This is the old English grammatical chestnut known as the "split
infinitive" (or rather, in the case of my draft, the infinitive is
intentionally *not* split).
Both forms are used, and mean the same. The one I chose is sometimes
considered the more 'classically' correct, and some stick-in-the-muds
consider your form to be incorrect. Wikipedia has quite a good article
I instinctively like the non-split form here because, to me, it
emphasizes more clearly that "appropriately" applies to all three
