Summary: This document is nearly ready for publication as a Proposed 

Standard RFC

Major issues: It seems to this reviewer that at least the definition of 

how to use these names, reference tor-rendezvous, needs to be a 

normative reference.  It appears likely that tor-address also ought to 

be a normative reference.

Minor issues:  It is not clear that a github reference without version 

identification is sufficiently stable for a normative reference from an RFC.
