Hi all,

After a long time, we finally managed to address (hopefully) all the
issues raised during IESG review. There's surprisingly large number of
- FQDN vs addresses section rewritten
  (addresses 2 or 3 DISCUSSes)
- Privacy considerations section added
  (Stephen Farrell requested it)
- Added clarification that the doc can be used during experts review
  (addressed Benoit Claise's positive DISCUSS)
- the wording about RFC5908 (NTP option) ugliness was eased. The text
  simply states that it should not be used as a template for new
  options. (Brian Haberman was unhappy about old text)
- added references to RFC5986, RFC5223
  (Richard Barnes' comment)
- added clarification to text if the draft updates 3315 or not
  (result of latest discussions about unknown-msg draft)
- many smaller clarifications and explanations
  (other nits from IESG)

Most of them could be considered clarification changes, except the one
about address vs FQDN. -14 text strongly suggested using address, unless
there are compelling reasons to use FQDN. The new text tries to make
more balanced approach and explores benefits and flaws of each
approach. This updated text has been agreed with IESG members that
raised DISCUSSes about its previous version.

Since this changes what WG agreed to, I'd like ask Bernie to run a short
WGLC on this to confirm that WG does not have strong objections in that
