For a nit:

    o  Provides controls to mitigate potential privacy considerations
       associated with this extension

I don't think one would mitigate considerations.  Either address 
considerations, or mitigate leakage.

In Section 4.1:
    Reports carry more detailed information and present a greater risk.

    Reports carry more detailed information and present a greater risk.

The title of Appendix A is misleading.  The experiment is not limited to 
privacy concerns.  Shouldn't it be entitled just "The Experiment"?

Later in Appendix A:

    o  Section 3.2 modifies policy discovery to add an additional DNS

Isn't that Section 3.5 «Changes in Section 6.6.3 "Policy Discovery"»?
