I have reviewed draft-ietf-dnsop-onion-tld-00 as part of the Operational 

directorate's ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being 

processed by the IESG.  These comments were written with the intent of 

improving the operational aspects of the IETF drafts. Comments that are 

not addressed in last call may be included in AD reviews during the IESG 

review.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just 

like any other (rather belated) last call comments.

As I understand it, this document is formalizing an established usage. 

Hence no consideration of transition is required. The template indicates 

how the DNS infrastructure should react to .onion domain name requests, 

but does not spell out which aspects of that would be managed and which 

would be a matter of implementation. It would be nice if this were made 

explicit but is probably unnecessary.

Note the IANA objection to the current wording of the template and IANA 

section. But from this reviewer's point of view the document is good to go.
