Ready with a couple of nits / editorial clarifications.

This document updates Automatic Multicast Tunneling (AMT) defined by RFC 7450 by defining  DNS Reverse IP AMT Discovery (DRIAD), an extension of the relay discovery process to use a new DNS resource record named AMTRELAY when discovering AMT relays for source-specific multicast channels.  

Major issues:

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments:

1. The reading of 2.4.1 and 2.4.3 seemed to me confusing. 2.4.1 speaks about 'establishing' a connection while 2.4.3 speaks about 'completing' a connection. Are the two terms equivalent? If so, I would prefer to use only one of them, if not, some more clarification is necessary. 

2. The term 'tier 3 ISP' used in Section 3.1.1 is an 'industry term' that needs to be defined, either by reference or in text.
