I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  (I previously
reviewed version -03.) These comments were written primarily for the benefit of
the security area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat these
comments just like any other last call comments.

This is a lengthy draft specifying an XML Media Control Channel Framework
Package for Interactive Voice Response (IVR) dialog interaction. The Security
Considerations Section is commensurately long, listing threats and areas where
security MUST be "addressed". The threats described seem
reasonably comprehensive. For protection against these threats and the required
addressing of security, the Security Considerations Section of this draft
references the Security Consideration and other Sections of
draft-ietf-mediactrl-sip-control-framework-11 (Media Control Channel Framework)
as well as the Security Considerations of RFC 3023 (XML Media Types).

These other document seem to provide adequate measures to protect against the
threats mentioned in the document being reviewed. Overall, I believe the
Security Consideration section is satisfactory and an improved from the -03
draft I previously reviewed.
