Summary: Ready with issues.

Major issues:

Minor issues:

Page 12, 2nd bullet item: I disagree that this is an implementation detail.  Unless there's additional signaling which indicates which implementation generated the packet, how is the receiving demultiplexer to know whether the sending multiplexer added a Message TLV or that was done by the protocol?

Nits/editorial comments: 

General:

Somebody  needs to strangle the comma fairy.  She was a bit too liberal with this document. ;-)  I didn't take the time to clean up all of the excess commas, but many are noted below.

Change "end to end" to "end-to-end" throughout the document.
