Summary: This document is almost ready for publication as an Informational RFC

Major issues:
    This document says it is Informational.  It says it describes "a" capport architecture.  But the third paragraph of the introduction says that this document standardizes an architecture.  The rest of this review assumes that is an error, and this is describing "an" architecture, rather than "the IETF" architecture.

Minor issues:
    The abstract really should expand "capport".   As simple as having the first sentence read "This document describes a "captive portal" (capport) archtiecture."

Nits/editorial comments:
    Following the first bulleted list in the introduction, the document reads: "this document does not yet describe...?  The word "yet" seems inappropriate.  We are pbulsihgin this as an RFC.  Please remove the "yet".
