Summary: This draft clarifies a point of potential confusion around
the use of the TCP MSS. ÂThe draft is ready for publication as an
informational RFC, with a couple of nits.

Major issues: none

Minor issues: none

Nits/editorial comments:

Opinion... The draft seems a little long. ÂSection 4 contains the only
truly crucial point: namely the one made after the matrix. ÂThat
alone, plus the short description in Section 2, seems sufficient. The
appendix is excessive.

Section 6 does not contain security considerations. ÂIt need not
contain anything.

Sections 3 and 5 have extra indentation for their subsections.

The table in Section 4 has a wayward period.
