I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  These
comments were written primarily for the benefit of the security area directors.
 Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other
last call comments.

This five page document clarifies that the intent of the term "global" in RFC
6809 is for a special-purpose address to be "globally reachable". It also
corrects some errors in the IANA Special-Purpose Address Registries.

Since the scope of "global" is clarified rather than changed, there does not
seem to be any additional security considerations.  None of the error
corrections introduce additional security considerations either.  The authors
obviously came to the same conclusion since they did not include a Security
Considerations section. This does not concern me personally, and I'll leave it
for the Security ADs to determine if they prefer one added that states "there
are no security considerations".

I consider the document Ready.
