I have been assigned draft-ietf-dnsop-svcb-https to review on behalf of the Ops
Directorate.  This document describes two new RR types (Service Binding [SVCB]
and HTTPS).  From an operational standpoint, I think this document is ready,
and I appreciate the attention paid to interoperability with approaches such as
ECS, Alt-Svc, etc.

I did find two issues with the document, however.  On a more editorial front, I
found a few references to "ServiceForm" and "AliasForm" (the former being in
the appending, but the latter showing up in Security Considerations).  These
seem to be left over from a former revision and probably should be ServiceMode
and AliasMode now, correct?

Second, you use the term "SVCB-compatible" early on in Section 1, and you
mention what its definition might be in Section 1.4, but I don't really get a
clear picture of what makes an RR SVCB-compatible.  I feel the document should
expound on the minimum requirements to be considered as such.
