Summary: Looks good to me.  Ship it.

Nits/editorial comments:

Section 3 does not establish a notation convention for multiplication.
 I didn't find a specific place that this was a problem, but it seemed
appropriate since multiplications was, in some places denoted 'n*b'
and others as 'xy', even though multi-character identifiers are used
in many places.  This does imply that a precedence override is
necessary.  I suggest parentheses, since they are already used

Section 3: s/MAC funtion/MAC functions/

Section 5: could use a more rigorous list construction, the
definitions all run together

Needs more ASN.1
