Dear authors,

First of all, thanks for your work.

As the shepherd for draft-ietf-6lo-minimal-fragment-02, I have reviewed
the document, and have the following comments:

- "LLN" is used in the title and in the abstract, but the actual body of
the document uses the term "6LoWPAN" (or "6Lo"), which in fact is more
specific. Should "LLN" be replaced with "6LoWPAN" (or "6Lo")?  (I tend to
think so...)

- The document uses the term "minimal" also in the title and in the
abstract, but the document does not explicitly define how the concept of
"minimal" needs to be understood. Furthermore, "minimal" is not present in
the body of the document. Perhaps some clarification on the concept of
"minimal" (e.g. in the Introduction) might help the reader.
