Review by Ari Keränen:

Just one somewhat technical comment:


   In this process, the obsoleted state in the old path is not
   explicitly released because the state can be released by timer

This may have some mobility specific security implications that could be mentioned in the security considerations section.

Then nits and editorial issues:

NSIS abbreviation should be expanded in the abstract (but probably not in the title).

What does it mean when "NAT/FW procedure likes QoS NSLP"?

This is an example of a well-written document that is sometimes hard to parse becuse of small issues with the use of English. I know that the RFC Editor will make a pass for this type of issue, but it would have been (could still be!) good to get a native speaker from the WG to take an editorial pass on the document. The risks associated with the RFC Editor correcting text without the knowledge of the technical details are considerable.
