  From Gen-ART Review by Ben Campbell.

  In Section 3.2, It would be helpful to mention how Authorize Only
  is used to ease mapping to Diameter, and reference the Diameter  
  Considerations section.  As it is, the reader wonders what the
  semantic effect of the resulting Access-Request message is  
  supposed to be.

  Section 6.2, 4th paragraph, raises a question.  Can a proxy be
  expected to easily know if it is one-hop away from the NAS?  Is the
  mechanism for determining this well-known or documented somewhere
  that could be referenced here?

The figures in sections 2.1 and 2.2 use Disconnect-Response and CoA-Response as shorthand
for "Disconnect-ACK or Disconnect-NAK" and "CoA-ACK or CoA-NAK" respectively.  These
terms are never defined, and in fact are never used again.  I can't claim it was too hard to figure
out, but it might be better if the meaning was explicitly stated.

Perhaps the terms could be introduced in the text following the figures and implicitly defined
in a parenthetical, in the same way that "Response packet" was introduced in section 2.3:

           The  Authenticator field in a Response Packet (e.g. Disconnect-ACK,
            Disconnect-NAK, CoA-ACK, or CoA-NAK).

Getting my discuss addressed would likely take more time with this set of authors and chairs than is worthwhile.
