* Section 4.3.

* How is this Element ID (255) allocated? Is this going to have to come from the IEEE or is it part of an experimental range? I am just checking to make sure that we are not missing a required action for this.

* What is a "single octet integer in little-endian format"? Why does endianness matter for a single byte field?

"Element ID, Length, and ID Extension are all single octet integers in little-endian format."

(Via drafts-lastcall-comment@iana.org): IESG/Authors/WG Chairs:

The IANA Services Operator has reviewed draft-harkins-owe-05.txt, which is currently in Last Call, and has the following comments:

We understand that this document doesn't require any registry actions.

While it's often helpful for a document's IANA Considerations section to remain in place upon publication even if there are no actions, if the authors strongly prefer to remove it, we do not object.

If this assessment is not accurate, please respond as soon as possible.

Thank you,
