Ready with Issues

This document defines a YANG data model for the capabilities of various NSFs in the I2NSF framework to centrally manage the capabilities of the various NSFs. This is a very clear and well written document, and the use cases and the examples also help its readability. The document was already reviewed and found READY for publication by the YANG Doctors, so I did not perform a detailed YANG review but rather focused on the Gen-ART specific aspects. A couple of issues should be discussed and clarified before approval. 

Major issues:

Minor issues:

1. In the introduction: 

> This YANG data model is based on the
   information model for I2NSF NSF capabilities

So, the YANG data model is based on [I-D.ietf-i2nsf-capability], and the YANG module references [draft-ietf-i2nsf-nsf-monitoring-data-model-03] and [I-D.ietf-i2nsf-sdn-ipsec-flow-protection]. However, these three documents are listed as Informative References. Without them the document cannot be understood and implemented, so I believe that these reference should be moved to Normative References. 

2. In the YANG module a few condition capabilities have no REFERENCEs. Where can the semantics be found? 


Nits/editorial comments:

1. Some of the acronyms are not expanded at first occurrence (VoIP, VoLTE, DDoS, etc. )
