Summary: The document is ready for publication as a standards track RFC

Major issues: none

Minor issues: none

Nits/editorial comments:

- Please expand acronyms at first usage. This includes: DODAG, ETX

- Section 3.1. Towards the end of the section, the sentence reads:

and then there are 3 conditions numbered from 1 to 3. It is not clear if 

the path cost should be recomputed when all of the 3 conditions are met, 

or when any of the 3 conditions are met. In other words, it is not clear 

if the 3 bullet points are an "AND" or an "OR" operation among then. 

Presumably they are an "OR". If this is the case, perhaps the sentence 

should be rephrased as:

   The path cost corresponding to a neighbor SHOULD be re-computed each
   time any of the following conditions are met:
