This should be raised earlier in the document. As written, the
spec does not provide an interoperable solution. This may not be
required for an experimental specification, but at the very least
the reader should know about this after reading the introduction.

Thomas Narten's quick review reaction was this:

When you do incremental updates, there are all sorts of failure edge cases. Its a lot like how to correctly do a sliding window protocol.
Just skimming the document, its not presented in a way that explains 
the basic idea behind the details. For correctness, you need equivalent
of 3 way handshake to be sure both sides are synchronized w.r.t. shared

I think that it is very unfortunate that we can't agree on one single standards track approach for supporting MANET networks with OSPF. However, I understand the difficulty here, and under the circumstances  probably the least bad approach is to progress all three as experimental, and then hope to sort out differences with the aid of operational experience.

It's only necessary to cite the reference for a citation to a doc on first mention; reading, e.g., "...modifications to [OSPFv3] to support..." throughout the doc is distracting.

Acronym expansion for LSA?  

Are there some links missing or other typos in this network map?

E.g., should the leftmost vertical bars be shifter right 6 or so spaces?

1.2  Motivation for extending OSPF to support MANETs

   The second motivation is that OSPF is a well understand and widely


   deployed routing protocol.

This should say that it is in network byte order.
