Thank you for the work put into this document. It is very easy to read.

Nevertheless, please find below some non-blocking COMMENTs (and I would
appreciate a response from the authors) and NITS.

As I reviewed draft-ietf-6lo-fragment-recovery before this document, I put some
COMMENTs in my review of draft-ietf-6lo-fragment-recovery that also apply to
this document.

I hope that this helps to improve the document,




Is there a reason why this document uses "Link-Layer address" while the
companion, draft-ietf-6lo-fragment-recovery, uses "MAC address" ? This is
cosmetic of course but if the concept is the same, using the same wording could
only improve the readability of the documents. Same applies for "datagram_tag"
vs "Datagram_Tag" ;-)

-- Section 5 --
"Multiple fragments may progress in parallel" is not really correct as the
rather travel "simultaneously" as they follow the same path but at different
steps (i.e. not like using parallel links).

-- Section 6 --
The "no per-fragment routing" can also be seen as an advantage as it forces all
fragments to be in order.

== NITS ==

Is the case in "Link-Layer" correct? I am a non native speaker but I would have
used "link-layer".
