Summary: This draft is basically ready for publication, but has nits that should be fixed before publication. 

Major issues: None.

Minor issues: None.

Nits/editorial comments:

The abstract is hard to parse and could be improved by fixing the following nits.

OLD: "Facility backup method allows"
NEW: "The facility backup method allows"

OLD: "The many-to-one nature of local repair technique"
NEW: "The many-to-one nature of this local repair technique"

OLD: "This document enumerates facility backup procedures in RFC 4090"
NEW: "This document enumerates the facility backup procedures in RFC 4090" [or "several facility backup procedures", if not all procedures are enumerated here]

OLD: "and hence make facility backup method refresh-interval dependent."
NEW: "and hence make the facility backup method refresh-interval dependent."

OLD: "The RSVP-TE extensions defined in this document will enhance"
NEW: "This document defines RSVP-TE extensions to enhance"

Are "facility backup method", "facility backup procedure" and "facility backup protection mechanism" all the same thing? Please consider using only a single term to avoid confusion.

Please double-check the use of definite and indefinite articles in the rest of the document as well.
