Section 1

   For example, in ZigBee IP

Needs a reference.

(1) Why not specify how the PaC finds the PRE here?  Seems odd.

(2) This entire paragraph is very unclear. "The Session Identifier
and Sequence Number of a PRY message are set to zero.  A PRY
message is never retransmitted by the PRE or the PAA.  The PRE and
PAA do not advance their incoming or outgoing sequence numbers for
request when transmitting or receiving a PRY message.  Note that
the PANA message carried in a Relayed-Message may be retransmitted
by the PaC or PAA, leading to transmission of another PRY carrying
the same Relayed-Message." For example, you need to state a
condition that causes the session id and sequence # to be set to
zero - it surely doesn't happen just once every blue moon :-) (Same
thing is restated later.)

(3) It would be stronger to say that multiple proxys are a MUST

(4) 1st sentence of section 3; s/must/MUST/?

(5) "Because the PREs and PAAs are used within an organization,..."
That should be clearer up front.

Is the only reason for this protocol so that the PRE does not need to keep the context for every PaC request? I don't quite understand why the PAA has to be involved in this at all except to turn around the information for the PRE to find the PaC.

I had an issue with the first paragraph in Section 3 until I saw the exchange between Stephen and Alper.  Long way of saying I support Stephen's discuss.
