Summary: Ready with a couple of minor points that need to be clarified.

Major issues:
None

Minor issues:

In Section 5

   However as [RFC4960] switchback behavior is
   suboptimal in certain situations, especially in scenarios where a
   number of equally good paths are available, an SCTP implementation
   MAY support also, as alternative behavior, the Primary Path
   Switchover mode of operation and MAY enable it based on users’
   requests.



Did you really mean "users" (human beings) and not "applications" 


(programs) here? I.e., is this something that needs to be exposed in 


APIs or User Interfaces.






In Section 7.1: should new constants be defined with specific numeric 


values, in order to improve interoperability?
