The following text

Four values are possible for the leaf type field:

   1.  New leaves to add;
   2.  Old leaves to remove;
   3.  Old leaves whose path can be modified/reoptimized;
   4.  Old leaves whose path must be left unchanged.


Is almost identical to the text two lines above, and the list entry numbers are I think the values, but this is not a clear way to show it.

If the authors think there will ever be more than 4 operations, they should consider using a registry.

While the addition of PCEP-P2MP extensions may have minimal impact on the level of traffic and operations, the applications that are enabled by activating these extensions may result in increased traffic and operational complexity.

I support Tim's DISCUSS position too.

Some new comments based on Russ Mundy's SECDIR review:

1) RFC4875 Security Considerations requires that the ingress LSR of a
   P2MP TE LSP the leaves for the P2MP LSP for use in multi-vendor
   deployments.  Although it's not clear that this document needs to
   provide this requirement, I wanted to flag the requirement in case
   that it had been overlooked.
