This document describes changes to synchronize IDNA2008 and Unicode 11.0.0 and makes recommendations for the DNS registries on this respect.

The document is READY with the exception of one issue that needs clarification concerning the IANA actions. 

Major issues:

Minor issues:

The IANA Considerations text is not clear to me. 

> IANA is requested to update the IDNA Parameters registry of derived
   property values, after the expert reviewer validates that the derived
   property values are calculated correctly.

What does this exactly say? Are these recommendations for future actions, or do they refer specifically to property values described in this document? Are the expert reviewer validation and IDNA Parameters registry update required to be performed prior to approval of this document?
