Summary: Essentially ready.  The nits from the last call review have
mostly been fixed - thanks. The issues with the references section have
only ben partly dealt with and there are still a mixture of bytes and
octets.  There is a rather awkquard downref to the VP8 coded data format
RFC 6386 - take advice from your AD on this one (he may already have
given it).
Major issues:

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments:
General: Consistent use of octets instead of bytes.

s10:  Are all of the refs normative?  If so change the section title.
The only one which I am dubious about is RFC 4566 (and there is  6386 -
see next comment).

s10:  idnits complains that RFC 3984 is not referenced (sorry the LC
review said 3894), and RFC 6386 is a downref (you had better ask your AD
about this downref - it is fairly fundamental!)
