Summary: This draft is ready for publication as an Experimental RFC

Though this is not an area of expertise for me, the document is clearly 
written, I reviewed the data structures and they appear correct, and the 
document seems ready to go forward. (I do find it dicey that this is an 
Experimental document. I understand there is history here, but this is a 
full-fledged protocol document and the fact that it is only required to 
be subjected to a cursory review for Experimental status and can pass 
IESG review with one "YES" and everyone else "ABSTAIN"ing seems kinda 
ridiculous. But that's not a reason to stop this document.)

Major issues:


Minor issues:


Nits/editorial comments:

Section 9, second to last paragraph: "Otherwise, the packet has been 
tampered with and is discarded." The "tampered with" is probably 
overstating the case. I would simply say "invalid".
