This draft is basically ready for publication, but has nits that

should be fixed before publication.


This draft covers defect behavior for Ethernet pseudowires


including defect state mapping and PE defect reporting behavior.

The draft is generally in good shape.  I found a few minor nits.


1) The draft uses a lot of acronyms - while each acronym appears to


e expanded on first use, an additional section near the start of the

draft listing

 all of them 

would be helpful.


2) There's a typo in the first paragraph of section 2:


     covers the following Ethernet OAM (Opertaions

, Administration and 



 -> Operations.


3) The following normative reference is incomplete - please add additional

information that will enable a reader to locate the referenced document:


     [MEF16] "Ethernet Local Management Interface", MEF16, January 2006.


4) idnits

 2.12.13 did not like the pagination:


  == The page length should not exceed 58 lines per page, but there was 22

     longer pages, the longest (page 1) being 61 lines
