Just one minor comment:

Section 2

   The CBOR content type is intended to be encapsulated in the signed
   data and auth-enveloped data, but can be included in any CMS wrapper.
   It cannot be predicted if the compressed CMS encapsulation will
   provide compression as the content may be binary rather than text.

I might reword the "provide compression" bit, perhaps "produce a smaller
encoding" or "provide usable compression".  (Similarly for the CBOR sequence case.)

No objection on the publication of this document but I really wonder why this was not just published as a document by the cbor working group...? Was there a review by the working group or an announcement on the mailing list?

Thanks for creating this document. I only have minor editorial comments.


Please expand "CMS" and "CBOR" in the title, the abstract, and the


i-d nits reports:

  ** There are 8 instances of too long lines in the document, the longest one
     being 7 characters in excess of 72.

Wouldn't this conventionally be the following?

   "... smime(16) modules(0) id-mod-cbor-2019(TBD3) ..."

Simple and easy to read document. But, as expressed by Mirja, I would really appreciate an explanation why this document was not even submitted to the CBOR mailing list.

Is "getting it done quickly" the only reason ?
