Document: draft-martin-urn-globus-02
    A URN Namespace for Globus
Reviewer: Joel M. Halpern
Review Date: 11-Feb-2016
IETF LC End Date: 9-March-2016
IESG Telechat date: 17-March-2016

Summary: This document is nearly ready for publication as an 

informational RFC.

This reviewer assumes that the appropriate message has been or will be 

sent to urn-nid at

Major issues:

    As per the pointer in this document to RFC 3406 section 4.3, this 

document is required to have a Namespace Considerations section which 

"outlines the perceived need for a new namespace (i.e., where existing 

namespaces fall short of the proposer's requirements)."  While there is 

a section called Namespace Considerations, what it lists is the 

envisioned usages, not the reasons existing name spaces are insufficient.

Minor issues: N/A

Nits/editorial comments: N/A
