This document is ready as a Proposed Standard.  One minor comment and
one nit below.

Major: 0
Minor: 1
Nits: 1

Minor:
- S2.1, the sentence, "A packet that arrives within this time window
 but is too early or late to be played out or thrown away before
 playout due to packet duplication or redundancy shall be regarded as
 discarded." is hard to read and parse.

 Clearly, if a packet arrives early, it will be buffered.  Just as
 clearly, if a packet arrives too late to be played out, it will be
 discarded.  Maybe you should break the offending sentence into two
 separate sentences, one dealing with early arrival and the other
 with late arrival.

Nits
- S1.1, last paragraph: s/in[RFC3611]./in [RFC3611]./

Thanks,

- vijay
