COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for addressing my DISCUSS points. Original COMMENT below:

= General =

I agree with Benjamin that the marketing-type language in the document should
be removed.

I wonder about the claims of security based on proximity in this document.
Presumably attacks in which users are induced to tap their device against
another node or terminal which has been compromised by an attacker are becoming
more common as NFC becomes more common; adding IPV6 connectivity to the
terminal stack surely broadens the potential damage done in such a case. This
seems worth noting.

= Section 1 =

OLD
It has been used in devices such as mobile phones, running Android operating
   system, named with a feature called "Android Beam".  In addition, it
   is expected for the other mobile phones, running the other operating
   systems (e.g., iOS, etc.) to be equipped with NFC technology in the
   near future.

NEW
At the time of this writing, it had been used in devices such as mobile phones,
running Android operating
   system, named with a feature called "Android Beam".  It was expected for the
   other mobile phones, running the other operating systems (e.g., iOS, etc.)
   to be equipped with NFC technology in the near future.

= Section 4.5 =

Per the Gen-ART review, the use of the term "meet" is confusing in this
section. Please re-phrase.
