+1 to not bending over backward to accommodate SSLv3 :) Section 3. It would be helpful to note that the "+" symbol is being used to denote concatenation of octet strings, or use "||" as above.

Thanks for including Section 2.1. Also, I rather like the informal style (of Section 2.1, and of some other parts of the document). -- Section 5 -- IANA has added the extension code point 22 (0x16) for the encrypt_then_mac extension to the TLS ExtensionType values registry as specified in TLS . This doesn't say whether there are or aren't any actions for IANA, and it should. I think there actually is an action: to make the early-registration code point permanent.
