Nits:

1/ S1: The value "thing" sort of creeps up on you in the second
 paragraph.  Upon further reading, it becomes more apparent that
 during the WG discussions "thing" was a meta-value (or super-
 class) and that "application" and "device" appear to be sub-
 classes (or specific values) of "thing"s.

 Furthermore, rf6473 already defined "application" and that this
 particular draft is now defining "device".

 To better impart this information, I would suggest the following
 simple modification

 OLD:
 ...Working Group defined values of "individual", "org", "group", and
 "location" for the KIND property.  Additionally, [RFC6473] has
 defined a value of "application" for the KIND property to represent
 software applications.

 During working group discussion of the document that became
 [RFC6473], consideration was given to defining a more general value
 of "thing", but it was decided to split "thing" into software
 applications and hardware devices and to define only the
 "application" value at that time....

 NEW:
 ...Working Group defined values of "individual", "org", "group", and
 "location" for the KIND property.

 During working group discussion of the document that became
 [RFC6473], consideration was given to defining a more general value
 of "thing", but it was decided to split "thing" into software
 applications and hardware devices and to define only the
 "application" value at that time....

2/ S2, top of page 4: "FN" probably expands to "Full Name".  If it is
 an accepted practice to use "FN" in your domain, then you can leave
 it unexpanded.  If not, then an expansion may help the general reader
 (like me) who may think what "FN" is.  (The rest of the properties
 listed on page 4 and 5 appear to be self-explanatory).

Thanks,
