Summary: The document is well written, and almost ready for publication. However, I have one comment that I would like the authors to address.

Major issues: None

Minor issues:

Sometimes, when a draft updates an existing RFC, people ask whether implementations not implementing the draft are still compliant with the updated RFC. Based on discussions, the consensus seems to be that existing implementations are still compliant, and if one wants to mandate the new features a bis is needed. I would just like to confirm whether that applies also to this draft. If so, perhaps a note indicating that would be useful, in order to avoid discussions in future? Related to that, it would also be good to have an interoperability statement, saying that implementations that implement the draft will still work with implementations that do not.

Nits/editorial comments: None
