This Document is Ready with one issue that I would suggest to clarify and possibly apply edits before approval. 

Major issues:

If my understanding is correct this document together with 7483bis will replace RFC 7482 and RFC 7483 and advance them to Internet Standard. Sections 7 and 8 will be taken out from the final published RFC. I believe that the relationship with RFC 7482 needs to be detailed either in the Introduction or in a dedicated version, in order to clarify for future readers and users the status of the 2 / 4 documents. I also believe that a shortened version of the 'Changes from RFC 7482' section now an Appendix should be included in the text of the document in its final form. 

Minor issues:
