My preference would be to use plain English instead of RFC 2119 language.

Section 2.1., paragraph 7:
>       Forwarding table" as defined in [RFC4364], and "VR" to "Virtual
>       Router" as defined in [VRs] terminology.

  Missing Reference: 'VRs' is mentioned on line 792, but not defined


Section 2.1., paragraph 14:
>       Rendez-vous point ([PIM-SM]).

  Missing Reference: 'PIM-SM' is mentioned on line 232, but not defined


Section 5.1.12., paragraph 3:
>    A committed minimum path MTU size SHOULD be provided to customers.
>    Moreover, since Ethernet LAN segments are often located at first and
>    last hops, a minimum 1500 bytes IP MTU SHOULD be provided.

  This requirement will be hard to meet over an Internet with a much
  lower minimum PMTU.

In Section 5.2.10 instead of 

' ... SNMP [RFC3411] MIBs (Management Information Bases) ...' 

Better say: 

'... SMIv2 [RFC2578] Management Information Base (MIB) modules to be used with SNMP [RFC3411] ... 

and add a reference to [RFC2578] ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc2578.txt.
