Summary: This draft is basically ready for publication as a proposed standard. I have a couple of minor comments and nits that might be worth considering, but probably shouldn't block anything.
-- section 3, paragraph after ISN formula: "It is vital that F not be computable…"
If it's vital for security reasons, it seems like this would be worthy of normative language.
-- Normative reference to RFC1321
This is a normative downref. It's a reasonable downref (maybe even the canonical reasonable downref). I call it out for the sake of completeness.
-- Appendix B, Removal of "A Common TCP Bug" section:
Can you comment on why the section was removed?
The abstract should explicitly mention the update to RFC793
-- section 1, 2nd paragraph:
Please expand ISN on first mention
-- informative references:
Is there any way to avoid orphaning the last reference fragment? It's confusing to find half a reference at the top of the next page.
