Summary: The document is well written, and almost ready for publication. I have
one minor editorial comment that I'd like the authors to address.

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments:

The Abstract says:

"This update to RFC2474 changes the IANA assignment method..."

...and the Introduction says:

 "To allow the IETF to utilise Pool 3 codepoints, this document
   requests IANA to to manage Pool 3 assignments for DSCP values in Pool
   3 via the Standards Action policy [RFC8126].  This assignment method
   requires publication of a Standards Track or Best Current Practice

I suggest to replace "method" with "policy".
