Hi Lou, 

Thanks for the quick reply! 
I'll copy comments in here (outlook is terrible with inline comments.. )

I've cleaned the nits out of my local copy, in the diffcheck URL I posted I'd only dealt with the other comments.

The Loss Threshold that we define is unrelated to MaxLMIntervalLoss (the upper bound of lost packets per measurement interval).
We do not wish to configure that value, what we'd like to do is, exactly like with the Delay Threshold, configure an upper limit that if exceeded triggers some kind of response. 
So we might for example want to tell an NMS that something strange is going on because packet loss is exceeding normal levels. 
Or perhaps we'd like to immediately trigger protection switching, or write the current time into a log file for later analysis, something like that. 
We'd rather not specify exactly what happens when the threshold is exceeded but leave that open (could be that nothing happens).
And since we're not talking about any particular thing in RFC6374 there's no reference to it.

Ah, it SHOULD be SHOULD, I MAY have made a mistake here :-)

Have all the nits been fixed?

okay.

 Your text now reads:
    Loss Threshold: the threshold value of measured lost packets per
    measurement over which action(s) SHOULD be triggered.  Configuration
    of triggered action(s) is out of scope for this document but may
    include signaling an NMS, triggering protection switching, etc.

I'm sorry, I just can't parse this.  Also, why not refer back to [RFC6374]?

Your text now reads:
    Delay Threshold: the threshold value of measured two-way delay (in
    milliseconds) over which action(s) SHOULD be triggered.
    Configuration of triggered action(s) is out of scope for this
    document but may include signaling an NMS, triggering protection
    switching, etc.

Okay.

Your text now reads:
   Refresh Timer: indicates the refresh timer of fault indication
   messages, in seconds.  The value MUST be between 1 to 20 seconds as
   specified for the Refresh Timer field in [RFC6427].  If the edge LSR
   receiving the Path message can not support the value it can reply
   with a higher timer value.

does "can" mean "MAY" or "SHOULD"?
