These are comments with WG co-chair hat off.

I don't recall providing input to this document:

11<>11>.  Acknowledgment

We would like to thank Tomasz Mrugalski and Bernie Volz for their
   comments on the design of the DHCP Options.

And at first glance this looks like encapsulation gone crazy!!

I haven't yet read it carefully enough to determine whether this makes sense to do.

I don't like things like requiring a server to return "empty" options if it "understands" them but they were not configured (or "badly" configured). And I can't see any benefit to the client for doing this documented (there's no special action the client is specified to take) -- so why do it?

A new version of I-D, draft-mglt-homenet-naming-architecture-dhc-options-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by Daniel Migault and posted to the
IETF repository.

Filename:        draft-mglt-homenet-naming-architecture-dhc-options
Revision:        00
Title:           DHCP DNS Public Authoritative Server Options
Creation date:   2013-10-20
Group:           Individual Submission
Number of pages: 35

   The home network naming architecture as described in [I-D.mglt-
   homenet-front-end-naming-delegation] requires a complex naming
   configuration on the CPE.  This configuration MAY not be handled
   easily by the average end user.  Furthermore, such misconfiguration
   MAY result in making home network unreachable.

   This document proposes a DHCP options that provide the CPE all
   necessary parameters to set up the home network naming architecture.

   First, this DHCP options provide automatic configuration and avoid
   most end users' misconfiguration.  Most average end users may not
   require specific configuration, and their ISP default configuration
   MAY fully address their needs.  In that case, the naming homenet
   architecture configuration will be completely transparent to the end
   users.  Then, saving naming configuration outside the CPE, makes it
   resilient to change of CPE or CPE upgrades.  Such configuration may
   also be configured by the end user, via the customer area of their

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at<>.
