    Summary: (2nd Last Call and Telechat) Almost ready. The points from
    my review of -24 in the first Last Call have all been addressed -
    thanks - with the exception of the location of the key definitions
    of "session id" and "communication session".  The latest version
    (-26) refers the reader to RFC 7206 which needs to be a normative
    reference but is an Informational RFC, creating a downref.    I
    cannot see that a requirements document meets the criteria for an
    allowable downref as described in Section 2 of RFC 3967. 
    Reproducing the two definitions in the new draft (and ensuring that
    they are accurate for the standards document) seems to be a better
    solution IMO.

    Major issues:


    Minor issues: 

    Downref to RFC 7206 - see above.


    Missing definitions of "session id" and "communication session" -
    see above.
