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

Major issues: none

Minor issues: none

Nits/editorial comments:

The document is well written and easy to read. Congratulations to the 


I have some minor editorial comments.

- All the figures that represent bits on the wire do not follow the 

convention of numbering the bits. I would suggest to add the bit number 

as per the RFC style guide. This means adding these two lines to most 

figures in the document:

       0                   1                   2                   3
       0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1

- Also, related to figures. I would suggest to add a caption to each 

figure, for example, under the figure in Section 2.1:

      Figure 2: RBridge Channel Message inner frame

This allows other documents to easily refer to the figure by number 

(e.g., "Figure 2 in RFC xxxx").

- Section 2.1.1: s/species/specifies

- Section 4. There are 5 bullet points. Something is wrong with the 

indentation of the third bullet point.
