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

Regarding this text:

"The test SHOULD use one of the test setups described in section 3.1
   or section 3.2 of this document in combination with Appendix A."

Appendix A is titled "Example Test Topology." If it's really an example, then
it seems like it should not be normatively required. So either the appendix
needs to be re-named, or the normative language needs to be removed. And if it
is normatively required, why is it in an appendix? The document would also
benefit from describing what the exception cases to the SHOULD are (I guess if
the tester doesn't care about having comparable results with other tests?).
