This draft is ready to be published as Standards Track RFC but I have some comments .


Major issues:


Minor issues:

-The draft's "Intended status:" is missing in the title.


Nits/editorial comments:

-[Page 2], Introduction, it would be clearer if the introduction would give more high level information or a reference to the 'implementation bug' being referred to:

"At least  one of these implementation bugs can be ameliorated by making the  ClientHello even larger."

Is this bug the one explained in Section 4? 


-[Page 2], "consists of an arbitary"---->"consists of an arbitrary"


Best Regards,



Meral Shirazipour
