Summary: Needs a YES. Needs 8 more YES or NO OBJECTION positions to pass.
I support the other DISCUSSes that raise the issue that a better status for
this document would be PS.
From the second para of the Introduction:
INCLUDE and EXCLUDE filter-modes are introduced to support the source
"are introduced" by IGMPv3 and/or MLDv2, or ???
This document describes lightweight IGMPv3 and MLDv2 protocols (LW-
IGMPv3 and LW-MLDv2), which simplify the standard (full) versions of
IGMPv3 and MLDv2. The interoperability with the full versions and
the previous versions of IGMP and MLD is also taken into account.

The Gen-ART Review by Brian Carpenter on 2009-09-01 raises a question
about this text:
> 1. Introduction
> Since LW-IGMPv3 and LW-MLDv2 are fully compatible with the full
> version of these protocols (i.e., the standard IGMPv3 and MLDv2),

I assume this also means that LW-IGMPv3 and LW-MLDv2 are strict subsets
of IGMPv3 and MLDv2. If so, it would be useful to say so explicitly.
