   Stylistic suggestion: in the bullets in section 2, either include
   the parenthetical "(creating a connection in the SYN-RECEIVED
   state)" in every sub-bullet or only the first.

   Where ISN comparisons are performed in the rules in section 2, is
   the comparison strictly "less than", or is the (rather unlikely
   event of) wraparound considered?

  I expected a few (minor) changes following the Gen-ART Review by

I think it would be better to point to draft-ietf-tcpm-tcp-security, rather than [CPNI-TCP],
since it will represent community consensus with respect to security issues for tcp.
