I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  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 doc describes minor version 2 updates to NFSv4. There are 6 new
operations/features supported: Server Side Copy, Application I/O Advise, Space
Reservations, Sparse Files, Application Data Blocks, and Labeled NFS.

Consistent with other NFS docs, security considerations specific to an
operation are described in the section for that operation. Server Side Copy and
Labeled NFS each contain their own sub-sections.

The main security considerations section states that this revision has all the
security considerations of NFS version 4.1 (referencing RFC5661), and also
refers to the feature-specific discussions in previous sections.

I didn't find any issues not already addressed by the security considerations
in this and referenced docs.
