Thanks for working hard on my Discusses and Comments.

One minor issue from the Discuss remains, but it is so small that I have cleared.

If you are working on the I-D for a further spin, through an RFC Editor note, or in Auth48, perhaps you could look at it.

I wrote...

In an email exchange I expanded this to highlight the specific paragraphs...

I don't think there was any follow-up email on this, so it probably  just got missed.

The illustrative flows throughout the document focus on messages where requests succeed. Should there be any discussion of what happens when something fails? (For a twisted example, consider 4.4.1)

The example in 9.2 suggests the SIP Server delay forwarding the 200 OK
it is processing until the RAR/RAA round completes. Unless that's really what you meant, please consider adding text noting that the 200 could be sent while the NE was being touched. If it _is_ really what you meant, then
more discussion of what to do if that activation fails or takes a long time is in order.
