- Section 4.1.  Name: Type-P-Round-trip-Loss
I double checked this name with RFC 2680
1. It should be Type-P-Round-trip-Packet-Loss throughout the document
2. I opened this errata on RFC 2680

I'll trust the IPPM community on this one.
No need to discuss further

Regards, Benoit.

I had a discuss to check that Sandy Murphy's secdir review
comments had been taken  into account. I asked and wasn't
told they hadn't been, so I've cleared.
