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.

The draft defines a URI for rsync, and it refers the reader to the  

detailed security considerations of RFC 3986 (Uniform Resource  

Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax), after pointing out that some of  

those considerations do not apply.   This appears to cover the  

security issues.
