I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the
security area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat
these comments just like any other last call comments.

This is a BEEP extension to enable asynchrony.  The security 

considerations section highlights the DOS potential from state 

accumulation, and I don't think anything more needs to be said.  I see 

no security problems with the document.

Process/quality of review: The template for the doc says it was 

reviewed on the BEEP WG list, but the document doesn't suggest taking 

discussion there.  And BEEP closed in 2002.

Typo in section 3.1:

I also noticed that there's no list of contributors nor any 

acknowledgements.  Might some be appropriate?
