Matt, authors,

Some more comments from my side.

-Abstract:  Please substitute GMPLS with RSVP-TE, we're just defining new values for RSVP-TE, not the whole GMPLS suite.  (Are you planning to define also extensions to OSPF? It's a bit weird to be able to signal something but not to advertise it).

-Introduction: I'd substitute "ODU-related" with "the digital layer of the G.709 OTN", or "the Optical Channel Data Unit"

-Introduction: same comment as abstract

-Normative reference: RFC7139 occurs twice.

-Intended status: I think that draft has to be standard track. Even if g.sup43 is not a standard document we're defining a standard behavior for RSVP-TE.

Thanks, Adrian. We'll make the changes you suggest after LC (the G.sup43 one pending confirmation).

Thanks Daniele.

It would be nice as a general principle to have the document nit-free before last call, but anyway, the authors can handle that as part of the last call comments and make the necessary fixes before the I-D goes forward. Maybe the same applies to the formatting, page breaks and so on?

I reviewed and commented on this document some time back and it appears to be much better now. Thanks to the authors.

Here are some nits...

The Abstract is full of abbreviations that will need to be expanded.

The text uses the term "draft" to describe itself. If you change this to be "document" it will remain consistent when the I-D becomes an RFC.

It would be nice if the IANA considerations section gave IANA a little more help. Specifically...
IANA maintains a registry called "Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling Parameters" with a subregistry called "OTN Signal Type". IANA is requested to make three further allocations from that registry as follows.
You might also give IANA guidance about which numbers to allocate as they will want to know whether to use the unassigned values in the 12-19 range or values in the 23-255 range. They will also wonder about 5.

I don't see how G.sup43 can be other than a normative reference. It looks to me from that the revision you reference is actually in force (i.e., not "for agreement").

And lastly (I'm sure we've had this discussion before) the registry is marked with the Registration Procedure "Standards Action" yet this document is marked as "Informational". That will mean that IANA will (should) refuse to assign the code points.
