I did OPSDIR review for this document.

From an operational and NM aspect, I do not see any issues.

I do have some general questions/comments though.
(None of them blocking though)

- The documents iften says "this standard".
  That feels weird. It is targeted for INFORMATIONAL document
  and if with "this standard" it is meant to say "ietf standard", then
  that status is something that may change over the liftime of an RFC.
  I think it might be better to use "this document" or "this memo".
- IN the security considerations section it syas:
     and relevant guidelines (e.g., SP 800-61-1) should be taken
  And in the change log it says:
     A reference was added to SP 800-132 for its recommendations...
  But I am missing the "citation" and the item in the REFERENCES section.
  I guess those active in security AREA all know where to find this,
  but for other readers it might be handy to have that refeneces in the
  list of references.
