Summary: This draft is almost ready for publication as an Informational RFC




Major issues:

Minor issues:

The document is not a requirement document. It is a use case, requirement and solution document so the abstract and the title are confusing.

I think it will be better to have the use case section before the requirements in section 3. Since the use cases are the reason for the rest of the document.

Section 3 is called requirements but it is not about requirements from a solution but also normative text about behavior of clients and servers.

This leads to the question why is it Informational document since it has normative recommendations for a solution.

I also think that there is a need for IANA section to discuss requirements  for new LFSs.
