Section 1., paragraph 2: > But such indications may not be always available > (e.g. DNAv6) to the node upon changing its point of attachment. What does DNAv6 refer to? Section 3.1., paragraph 6: > Successful establishment of a PDP Context on a GPRS link signifies > the availability of IP service to the MT. Therefore, this link-layer > event must generate a link up event notification sent to the IP > layer. Sounds like it places a requirement on non-IETF technology, which is inappropriate for an Informational document - rephrase. Maybe "...signifies the availability of IP service to the MT, which IP should treat as a link up notification" or something like that. (Similar wording is in 3.2, 3.3. and 3.4, same applies there.) Section 8.2., paragraph 3: > [I-D.ietf-mipshop-fast-mipv6] Outdated reference: draft-ietf-mipshop-fast-mipv6 has been published as RFC4068

Comment (2007-01-09 for -)
The author address <firstname.lastname@example.org> seems to be out of date. From the SecDir Review by Steve Bellovin: From the security perspective, you might want to contemplate some mention of "evil twin" attacks on 802.11 networks -- you can attach to the wrong AP. From a functionality perspective, you might want to note that on 802.3 networks, NICs often return a speed and duplex indication to the host, and that changes in it *might* indicate a new IP network.
