Routing Area Directorate review by Dimitri Papadimitriou raises a few very minor editorial points that should be looked at together with any other comments and issues raised during IESG review.

> Section 1: 
> 
> - "Each PIM-SM router may learn Group-to-RP mappings through
>    various mechanisms." which mechanisms ? ref's would be helpful
> 
> - "It is critical that each router select the same 'RP' for a specific
>    multicast group address." why ? a short sentence would be helpful
>    - note this requirement applies to al routers in the same "domain"
> 
> Section 4:
> 
> - "A Group-to-RP mapping learned for PIM-BIDIR mode is preferred to
>    an entry learned for PIM-SM mode."
>    is this reason dictated by arbitrary criteria or protocol operation 
>    criteria (dictated by RFC 5059) or other ?
> 
> Section 5: 
> 
> - Add ref's to BSR and Auto-RP in sentence
>   "In this case, to support some specific applications, they might like to
>    learn Group-to-RP mappings dynamically using either BSR or Auto-RP
>    mechanism."
> 
> - "This is not an issue for IPv6 Multicast address ranges." what "this" 
>    refers to ?
> 
> Section 6:
> 
> - What's the input to this algorithm ? there is a need to describe the set
>   of information onto which this procedure applies (the output is implicit).
> 
> - The description seems to mandate a sequential execution (from 1 to
>    10) but this is not stated ahead in the Section 6.
> 
> Section 9:
> 
> - " The algorithm in this document MUST be used. " on all routers in 
>   the domain? Please clarify. 
> 
> - "improve stability under misconfiguration" stability of what ? 
> 
> Section 11:
> 
> - does the term "block" refers to disable or filter ? or left unspecified ?
