This document specifies a new "challenges" for Automated Certificate Management

Major issues:

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments:
The 3rd paragraph of the Introduction stated that this New Challenges requires
negotiating a new application layer protocol, but no existing software
implements this protocol. Therefore the ability to fulfill this challenges is
effectively "opt-in". I find the statement is quite confusing. Does it mean
that it is necessary to manually add processing to handle the challenge because
 there is no implementation of auto negotiation?
