1. The last paragrah in the introduction section seems to be unrelated with the first three paragraphs. It mentions 'one of these two mechanisms' without the rest of the section defining what mechanisms are being discussed. 

2. There is a need for an abbreviations section in order to ease readability

3. Sections 3.2.4, 3.2.5, to, to define 'seconds' as units for latency and jitter. This does not seem to be granular enough and thus conflicts with Section 3.8 in RFC 1224 which requires that time units for latency for example be 'Time with fine enough units to distinguish between two events'.

DUT/SUT are not spelled out at their first usage or in a abbrevations chapter.
In general I think the document could become more readable if one actually wrote out abbrevations on their first usage. Even if they are obvious for a person skilled in the field.
