Dear all,

here are comments to clause 5.3.2:

1. 1st sentence: The request message initiating node is always the client but is not necessarily the reacting endpoint. Proposal is to modify the first sentence as follows:

   When a remote endpoint (i.e. a "reporting node") receives a request
   message in can detect whether the client or any other downstream
   Diameter node has support for the overload control solution based
   on the presence of the OC-Feature-Vector AVP.

2. 3rd sentence: OC-Feature-Vector AVP can be present in request and in answer messages. The actual text here should only refer to OC-Feature-Vector AVP as received in the request message. Furthermore the reporting node is not necessarily the node that initiated the answer. Proposal is to modify the sentence as follows:

   Based on the content of the received OC-Feature-Vector AVP the
   request message receiving endpoint knows what overload control
   functionality the other endpoint supports and then act accordingly
   for the subsequent answer message it returns.

Best regards
