I support Roman's DISCUSS, especially #2.

Also, please see the OpsDir review here -- I believe that you have already
discussed it with the reviewer (Thank you, Joe Clarke!), but wanted to make
sure that you also catch the nits.

Like Joe, and others, I find the term "Alarm Shelving" to be confusing -  it
may be a formal term of art, but I've working in / with many NOCs, and have
never heard the term used; if anything the terminology I'm familiar with "Shut
up stupid alarm! I'll suppress it for now....". Shelving evokes memories of
https://pics.me.me/10-ill-just-put-this-over-here-with-the-rest-32772452.png I
would suggest introducing the term earlier, and more fully describing it as a
courtesy to other readers.

"X.733 and especially 3GPP were not really clear on this point." - this sounds
(unncessarily) rude - I would suggest perhaps "The X.733 and 3GPP Alarm IRP
documents are not really clear ..."

"For example, a system with digital inputs that allows users to connects
detectors" s/connects/connect/ I would also think that a better term is

"A potential drawback of this is that there is a big risk that alarm operators
will receive alarm types as a surprise, ..." "big" reads oddly - I would
suggest "significant" instead.

"Alarm deletion (using the action "purge-alarms"), can use this state as a
criterion." - superfluous comma.
