This document is ready as a Proposed Standard with two minor nits.

Major: 0
Minor: 2
Nits:  0

Minor:
- S3.2,, first paragraph: "No message is ever sent from the monitoring
   station to the monitored router."
 You mean "No BMP message is ever sent from the monitoring station to
 the monitored router."?  I suspect that the monitoring station can send
 TCP messages (SYN, ACK, etc.) to the monitored router in order to open
 up the TCP connection, no?

- S3.2, last paragraph: "If the monitoring station intends to end or
   restart BMP processing, it simply drops the connection, optionally
   with a Termination message."
 The monitoring station cannot send a (BMP?) message to the monitored
 router, right?  If so, I don't understand the utility of the
 Termination method above.

Thanks,

- vijay
