Readable document, thank you. RDMA is not a "well known" acronym at http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc-style-guide/abbrev.expansion.txt You should expand it in the Abstract and Introduction. (You might also want to lobby the RFC Editor to get it made "well known" MPA will also need expansion in the Abstract. --- FULPDU: Framed Upper Layer Protocol PDU How many letter Ps?

- The abstract uses the asconyms MPA and RDMA without expansion, it'd be better not to do that and generally many acronyms are used before being expanded - a pass to fix that would be useful - The security considerations section says that this changes nothing compared to RFC 5044, however, I guess that a peer could try a DoS against another peer by setting large xRD values, but I don't know if that's significant enough to warrant a mention or not. Is it? If it were, then I guess just a warning that implementations ought to have some kind of sanity checking on those inputs would suffice. - Just out of curiosity - RFCs 5043 and 5044 seem to say: "if you want security, do IPsec" - is that how things are actually deployed?
