Reviewer: Linda Dunbar
Review result: Has Issues

I have reviewed this document as part of the Ops area directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  These
comments were written primarily for the benefit of the Ops area directors.
Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other
last-call comments.

This document describes the method to encode IP packets with the HTTP frame.

Issue-1: HTTP frame itself is carried by an IP packet. If a client needs to
send data packets to its desired destinations (e.g., IP D, E, ) via the node
that acts as the IP Proxy shown in Figure 14, it can be much easier
accomplished by establishing an IP tunnel between the Client and the "IP Proxy
Node (i.e., the tunnel between IP-A and IP-B). The IP layer can already achieve
this goal natively. You don't need to put an IP packet inside an HTTP frame
which is a payload to an IP packet.

Issue-2: Address request capsule:
In order for the Client HTTP frame to reach the Proxy node, they both already
have the IP connection. What is the purpose of the Address request?

Issue-3: Section 4.7.3 Route_advertisement Capsule:
The widely deployed BGP can advertise the routes. You don't need another layer
to repeat the work.

Best Regards,
Linda Dunbar
