Summary: This specification defines a protocol for handling objects in an RPKI repository.   The document seems fairly straightforward and simple to understand.

Major issues:

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments: 

Page 5, Section 2.2, last paragraph, last sentence: perhaps change "are permitted to" to "MAY"?

Page 7, Section 2.6, 1st paragraph: change "RelaxNG" to "RELAX NG". (Hey, I had to look it up.)

Page 14, Section 4, 1st paragraph after rsync enumation: "safely" is used but no subsequent mention is made of what is unsafe about the non-overlapping rsync directories.  Is the reader expected to know something about rsync's safety?  Nothing in the Security Considerations deals with this topic.

Page 16, Section 6, 3rd paragraph, 2nd sentence: insert "private" before "keys".  Insert "to" before "delete".

Page 17, Section 7: it might be good to include references to: XML, RelaxNG, and maybe rsync (yeah, I know that one is a little tough).
