Summary: This draft is basically ready for publication, but has nits
that should be fixed before publication.
This document specifies protocol requirements for MPLS in packet
transport networks. The document is of very good quality, with an
elaborate introduction explaining the background for this document.
Two editorial nits that the authors should consider addressing prior
to publication of this document are the following:
- The fourth paragraph on page 6, which is part of the introduction,
already specifies a requirement. I suggest moving this to section
2, since this is the section that is dedicated to requirements.
- The first paragraph of section 2 is a duplicate; it already appears in
the introduction. I suggest removing it from section 2. The
paragraph is important for the reader to understand the scope of the
document, and hence should retain its prominent position in the
introduction rather than the position in section 2.
