(I was assigned this both as a LC review and a telechat review--with
the telechat oddly happening before the end of the LC. Hopefully this
review can serve both purposes.)
This draft may be ready to publish as an informational RFC, but there
is an issue I'm not sure what to think of. See details below.
This draft does something I've never seen before, which is to
explicitly call for two versions of the RFC: a PDF version that
contains imbedded slides, and a text version which merely describes
the slides. The one under review is the text version.
I understand the desire to do this, as this draft describes
proceedings of an IETF/ITU-T joint effort, and each group has
different standards of documentation. But I am not sure what to think
of an RFC that is published in two different formats, with the content
being substantially different between them.
I don't propose that this is a bad or or thing--merely something for
the ADs to think about. It might work to have _both_ versions merely
reference the slides as an external document, but that would have
archival issues--which is I think the reason for this draft in the

the word "of" a typo?
