I have reviewed draft-ietf-lamps-rfc7030est-clarify for the purposes of clarity. As the document is intended as a series of clarifications, signficant changes, and some  small changes to RFC 7030 this is a mostly straight foward exercise excepting that in order to be useful a through reading of RFC 7030 is required.

It appears to be a that major variance to rfc 7030 is:

   Any updates to [RFC7030] to bring it inline with HTTP processing risk
   changing the on-wire protocol in a way that is not backwards
   compatible.  However, reports from implementers suggest that many
   implementations do not send the Content-Transfer-Encoding, and many
   of them ignore it.  The consequence is that simply deprecating the
   header would remain compatible with current implementations.

This update reflect implementation experience and brings 7030 inline with present implementation.

I think that this document is ready to go.
