This draft is basically ready for publication, but has one minor issue
that should be fixed (or at least looked at) before publication.

Major: 0
Minor: 1
Nits: 0

Minor issue:

- This is a document on the standards track.  Therefore, it is rather
 disconcerting to see the following statement in the draft (end of
 Section 2): "[This document] is not a panacea, nor is it a deep and
 thorough approach to flap reduction."

 I understand the panacea part, it is the trailing phrase that I want
 to draw attention to.

 Now, I am not a routing expert so I would presume that despite the
 exhortations above, the chairs of the WG and the AD have looked at
 the document and are comfortable with the sentence I have pointed out.
 (Sorry if it has been discussed in the WG.)  Assuming that is the
 case, I am happy to proceed with this document.  Assuming it is not,
 would an Experimental designation be appropriate?
