Summary: Ready with Nits

A couple of nits that I mentioned in my earlier review that you might want to address, but none of them are essential. (You may have decided that I was wrong; that's OK too.) I didn't bother Cc'ing the IETF list on this, since they're both very minor.

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments: 


   A set of non-overlapping available frequency ranges MUST be 
   disseminated in order to allow efficient resource management of 
   flexi-grid DWDM links and RSA procedures which are described in 
   Section 4.8 of [RFC7698]. 

Those MUSTs look weird to me. I think instead of "MUST be" you mean
"are", since it doesn't look like an implementation really has a
choice here.


   Hence, in order to support all possible applications and 
   implementations the following information should be advertised for
   a flexi-grid DWDM link:
Is that "should" in there meant to be normative? That is, do bad
things happen if I don't advertise one of those items? Or do you just
mean "the following information is advertised..."?
