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

Thank you for the work put into this document. The document is easy to read. I
have a couple of comments and nits. Feel free to ignore all of them.

Regards,

== COMMENTS ==

-- Section 1 --
Please add reference to IEEE Std 802.15.4 at first mention.

-- Section 1 --
It is unclear in this section whether the PSK is per pledge (then hitting a
scalability issue) or shared by all pledge (then having huge security risk).
Section 3 is clearer on this but the reader would benefit by knowing this in
section 1.

-- Section 2 --
Please consider not using "secret key" and "symmetric key" interchangeably. Esp
as "secret key" is often used in the context of asymmetric key.

-- Section 3 --
Unsure whether the text about provisionning "Physically, ..." brings anything
useful.

-- Section 3 --
Please add references to DHCPv6, GRASP, mDNS.

-- Section 4.2 --
It is unclear whether duplicate address detection should be done.

== NITS ==

-- Section 4 --
Please expand L2 at first mention.

-- Section 6.1.2 --
I am not a native English speaker but I wonder whether the word 'convergecast'
is well-known.
