Intended Status: Standards track
I have one minor comment about this document that I think should be
resolved before publication.
Draft is short and easy to understand. I see the need for one minor
clarification that can be resolved based on implementation experience.
No major issues found.
In reading the document it's unclear if Shutdown Communication field
must include a trailing zero or not. (I authored something similar once
and had an interop problem where one implementation assumed null
termination was required and included in length, while the other didn't.
Our intent was no null required, but the spec wasn't explicit.) Either
are fine, and given there are implementations you might just want to
have the spec match the implementation.
reports nits that should be fixed.
