- Since this seems to be the week for this recurring controversy: I agree with Mirja that the abstract should mention that this obsoletes 5988. and seem to entirely contain IANA considerations. It seems a bit strange to specify them here and reference them from the IANA section. (I can accept this as a stylistic choice, but it creates additional work for anyone who came to this  draft primarily to learn the IANA bits.)

ART and others are more qualified to make useful determinations here, so I'll restrict myself to nits. :-P

1: The Note to Readers should have an "RFC Editor, please remove" tag.

2: Section 2: " A link can be viewed as a statement of the form "_link context_ has a  _link relation type_ resource at _link target_, which has _targetattributes_". If possible, it would be really helpful to have an example here - this may be clear to those schooled in the arts, but I found this hard to parse, and required much flipping back and forth to understand.

Processing comments:
- The abstract should say that this document obsoletes RFC5988
- I don’t think we need to keep the pre-5378 disclaimer given Mark the only author of rfc5988 as well

It would be good to include a reference to RFC7525 in the security considerations section when talking about using TLS.
