Day(s) Late, I have reviewed this document as  part of the Operational 

directorate's ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being 

processed by the IESG. These comments were written primarily for the 

benefit of the operational area directors. Document editors and WG 

chairs should treat these comments just like any other last call comments.

Summary: Ready

This document was revised during the review cycle - I began with -15 and 

finished with -16.  A few of the changes cleared up notes I had made 

during the review. There also has been some strong last minute 

discussion on this document, so I suspect the larger consensus is still 

being addressed.

This document is taking RFC 3454, which created the first framework for 

Unicode text strings (aka 'stringprep').  Both this draft and the 

original RFC were fairly involved which took some time to work through 

all the documents to gain a better understanding.

Operationally, this draft will create three new IANA registries to 

complement the Stringprep Profiles registry which currently exist.  IANA 

registries can have some operational impact, though this reviewer finds 

it unlikely these will cause any impact.

Appendix A describes a Codepoint Table.  It states the included table is 

"...non-normative and is included only for illustrative purposes..."

The table is *30 pages long*, and it should be either removed or 

shortened since it is "only for illustrative purposes".
