Summary: The document is well written, and easy to read. As I am not familiar
with RSA-KEM, I don't have comments regarding the changes compared to RFC 5990.
However, I do have an editorial comment that I would like the authors to

Major issues: N/A

Minor issues: N/A

Nits/editorial comments:

Section 1.6 describes the changes from RFC 5990.

Q1: The text mixes between past tense (e.g., "required") and present tense
(e.g., "includes"). Please use consistent grammar.

Q2: It is unclear what "RFC 5990 includes" means. Does it mean that the usage
of something was defined? Was support of something required? etc.

Q3: Similar to the above question, it is unclear what "discussion of this"

Q4: I think it would be useful to include a few words about WHY a change has
been done. If described elsewhere in the document, a reference could be added.
