One comment to the security considerations section by Scott Brim, GEN-AREA reviewer:

in the Security section, I would add a paragraph reiterating 
of the issues due to ambiguity which were brought up in the preceding
sections.  Leakage, misrouting, etc., are noteworthy security issues.

Not worth holding the document for.

Would be good to cite the document that explains the "&" syntax in

RFC 3513 is listed as both a normative reference and an informative reference.  I would suggest striking it from the list of informative references.
