The "Comments on this document should be sent to msec@securemulticast.org" text at the end of the abstract should be removed.

Section 5.5
The "If all or even many members contact the GCKS at about the same time, the GCKS cannot handle all those messages" text sounds too absolute to me because there are ways to provide reliable service with load balancing, fast processors, etc.  It might be better phrased as "If all or even many members contact the GCKS at about the same time, there is a risk that the GCKS will be unable to process all of the messages".  This could also be addressed in section 7.

References should be split normative/informative.
