Not too happy that a document on the IESG table doesn't take into account
the shepherd feedback.
See "A few editing nits that should be addressed before final
publication: " at
which corresponds to Tim's OPS DIR feedback below.

My review found several issues with the document references and
and several of them mirror those of the document shepherd.  I suggest the
ADs heed the document shepherd words.

2.3.  Accounting for Congestion Volume

   3G and LTE networks provide extensive support for accounting and
   charging already, for example cf. the Policy Charging Control (PCC)

Section 2.4:

   [I-D.briscoe-conex-initial-deploy] provides specific examples of how

3.1.  Possible Deployment Scenarios

Please adjust this.

issue: The drawings are not close to the deployment scenarios. I would

issue: Figures 1-4 refer to objects "UE", "eNB", "S-GW", and "P-GW".
are not defined in the document anywhere.

6.  Security Considerations

   Security considerations for applying CONEX to EPS include, but are
   not limited to, the security considerations that apply to the CONEX

considerations that apply to the CONEX protocols


I-D.briscoe-conex-initial-deploy - "work in progress" is stated, but
draft is

I-D.briscoe-tsvwg-ecn-encap-guidelines - also expired

Appendix B:

    The EPS architecture and some of its standardized interfaces are
    depicted in Figure 1.

This should be Figure 5, which is also distant from the description.
effort should be used to place descriptions and figures in close
