Comments received from gen-art (by Mark Allman <email@example.com>): I'd say this draft is not quite ready. A few points .... * I'd **really** like to see an introduction that says what problem is being solved in very high-level terms. By the end of the document I sort of have an understanding, but I was immediately lost because the document seems to assume context that just isn't there for some of us. I understand that this is really only going to be used by folks implementing, but still --- I don't think it too much to ask to craft a statement on the problem the document solves that everyone else can understand. * Please define all acronymns. There are plenty of cases when an acronymn is just used without being defined or even spelled out. Please check them all. (A concrete example is the use of "DR" starting in section 6.) * Likewise, this (S,G) notation is weird to an outsider. A word or two about it's meaning would be useful (not an entire tutorial -- I understand the document is not for "outsiders", but a little help would be appreciated). * The text does not refer to appendix A, but should. * Section 3: The first half of the section seems un-needed to me (before the diagram). This text says things like if the flags are set to "01". But, that is not really what is meant. Rather, the document is keying on the second bit being one. At the moment, the first bit is unassigned and should be zero. But, the document even notes that this may change in the future. So, why does the document specify the first bit when it doesn't need to? Also, what happens when R=1 and either P or T (or both) are not 1? It seems that the failure cases should be considered more. * In the diagram on page 6, I assume "ID" is really "RIID"? I'd suggest changing the diagram for consistency.

Missing IANA Considerations (I-D checklist), though I assume it's not there because there aren't any.
