Summary: Ready

Major Concerns:


Minor Concerns:

The most recent RFC Editor style guide places normative and informative
references in top-level sections.  In this document, the normative
references should be Section 9, and the informative references should
be in a new Section 10.

Other Comments:

For absolute clarity, I suggest a small addition to Section 5.1.  It
says: "Thus, the entire encoding of the extension is 00 17 00 00."
I would add to the end of the sentence: "(in hexadecimal)".

Typo correction in Section 6.3: "sent by the server/".  Please replace
the slash with a period.
