I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the
security area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat
these comments just like any other last call comments.

This documents adds new status code 451 which says that document is
unavailable for legal reasons. It correctly points out that some
entities blocking access might not want to tell that they are blocking
this, so clients cannot rely on this, and also points out that users
might be able to bypass the restrictions using VPNs or TORs.

Summary: Ready.

I just wonder why did the example singled out "the People's Front of
Judea", and did not include "the Judean People's Front", "the Judean
Popular People's Front", "the Campaign for a Free Galilee", and "the
Popular Front of Judea".... :-)
