Dear colleagues,

Yesterday David, Michael and Scott posted a new version of the I-D,
addressing the vast majority of my concerns provided in the review. Also
we've had an off-list discussion with Scott, he provided his comments on
the remaining concerns – now I am completely satisfied with the current
condition of the document and support further steps with it.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Stanislav Smyshlyaev, Ph.D.
