Ready with nits.  This version clears up most of the issues that I had 

with -12 except that I am slightly wary of the extensive usage of RFC 

2118 keywords in contexts that appear to be operational guidance and may 

not be enforceable by implementations of the basic DANE protocol.  There 

are a couple of left over and/or introduced nits that didn't get fixed 

from -13 to -14.

Major issues:

Minor issues:

I am not totally convinced about the remaining usage of RFC 2118 

keywords, but I'll leave that for the ADs  to consider.

Nits/editorial comments:

There are a couple of nits introduced by the edits (or left over from 

the previous version):

s3, para 2: s/ When a servers does/When a server does/,
                   s/SHOULD respond/the server SHOULD respond/

s8, para 3, last sentence: s/the only other/The only other/

s10.1, next to last para:  s/as when significantly/as the full 

certificates are significantly/

s12, bullet 4: s/to processes extended/to  process extended/

s14, last para: s/PKIX-TA(0(/PKIX-TA(0)/
