Reviewer: Linda Dunbar
Review result: Ready with some questions

I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  These
comments were written primarily for the benefit of the security area directors.
Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other
last-call comments.

The document describes the procedure for in-band method for DNS operators to
publish arbitrary information about the zones. The description is very clear
and has a very clear description of the Security Consideration.

Here are some minor issues with the draft:
- What kind of "arbitrary information about the zones"? any examples?
- Section 3.2 (Page 6). The first step is not intuitive. does it mean nothing
needs to be performed if the child is "securely delegated"? How does the
"securely delegated" child publish information?

Thanks, Linda Dunbar
