Summary: This draft is almost ready for publication as a Proposed
Standard but I have a comment you might wish to address.

* Section 2

The Encode_96 function mentions that the output is obtained by
"extracting the middle 96-bit long bitstring" from the argument. This
seems to be in conflct with Appendix E of RFC5201bis where the HIT suite
3 recommends truncation of the hash to 96 bits. Shouldn't this just be a
truncation function?
