Yes, this is a significant change. It appears to imply that a cryptographic
PRNG is required in every RTP device and things will be more difficult for
3rd party network performance monitoring systems.

Although there is discussion in the draft downplaying these issues, there
are RTP applications that won't otherwise require a CPRNG and there are
applications where ease of monitoring is more important than security.

What was the reason given for wanting to remove the MAC option?

If we go with this, I suggest an editorial pass to reduce repetition in the
last two bullets in section 4.2 and clean up references to "multiple",
"several" as there are now only two methods recommended for generating
CNAMEs. Let me know if you need any help with this.
