Summary: Ready

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None (even some questions below could be promoted to issues)

Nits/editorial comments:
 There is no real justification: I had to read the first WGLC text to
 find the reason behind: there was a bug in RFC 2131.

 - Abstract page 1 and 1 page 4:
    return client identifier' option ->
    return 'client identifier' option

 - ToC page 3 and 6 page 6: Acknowledgements -> Acknowledgments

 - 1 page 4: DHCP server allocate -> DHCP servers allocate ?

 - 2 page 4: a combination of ... and ... constitute ... and are ... ->
  constitutes ... is (i.e., combination is the subject)?

 - 2 page 4: need not be unique -> are not required to be unique?

 - 3 page 5: the draft proposed to change "MUST NOT" into "MUST",
  perhaps it is enough to change them into "SHOULD"? (note this
  question comes from the lack of justification, and the use of
  loose terms as "update" or (worse) "clarify" in place of "fix"
  or "errata"... I.e., if you are convinced there was a bug the
  right fix is "MUST")

 - 7 page 6: RFC 3315 should IMHO be an informative reference

 - Authors' Addresses pages 6 and 7: extra spaces before ZIP codes?
