Greetings,

I worked my way through
<http://vdukhovni.github.io/ietf/draft-ietf-dane-smtp-with-dane-05.html>
today.

Unless I missed an explanation in another section I think the introduction to
"2.3.1. TLSA certificate usages" would benefit from a few words on the meaning
of "usage", "selector" and "associated data" or a reference to documents that
specify the terminology.

All subsections use them and I think knowing their meaning would help
understand the subsections better.

Regards

Patrick Koetter
