* Editorial nit - it's worth a comment as it's either a pretty noticeable typo or I'm pretty confused.

In Figure 1, should the label "Aggreg. Node" actually read "Aggreg. Network"?

* In section 4.1, second bullet list: the sentence
      This MUST allow
      to retrieve statistics and alarms (e.g. via SNMP) about the
is missing some words

* RFC 2119 terminology is not uniformly capitalized; for example, in section 4.2:

   o  The ANCP MUST support providing multicast conditional access
      information to Access Ports on an Access Node, using Black, Grey
      and White lists.

   o  The ANCP MUST support binding a particular Black, Grey and White
      List to a given Access Port.

   o  Upon receiving a join to a multicast flow which matches the Grey
      List the ANCP MUST allow the AN to query the NAS to request an
      admission decision for replicating that multicast flow to a
      particular Access Port.

   o  The ANCP MUST allow the NAS to send an admission decision to the
      AN indicating whether or not a multicast flow may be replicated to
      a particular Access Port.

   o  The ANCP must allow the NAS to indicate to the AN whether or not
      Admission Control is needed for some multicast flows on a given
      Access Port and where needed whether or not the Access Node is
      authorized to perform Admission Control itself (i.e. whether or
      not AN Bandwidth Delegation applies).

   o  In case of Admission Control without AN Bandwidth Delegation, the
      ANCP must allow the NAS to reply to a query from the AN indicating
      whether or not a multicast flow may be replicated to a particular
      Access Port.

   o  In case of Admission Control with AN Bandwidth Delegation, the
      ANCP must allow the NAS to delegate a certain amount of bandwidth
      to the AN for a given Access Port for multicast services only.

* Section 4.7.8: expand acronym "LAC"

More minor comments: 

Section 3.2 should expand or explain OPEX

I have no idea what an "element management interface" is

Not sure how the shutdown notification requirement is justified

Support Russ discuss that the doc needs to be revised prior to approval.
