Before we start making point-level suggestions for the draft, it would be useful to know whether the draft is still being worked on, and what its expected status will be. The draft has not been updated in nearly six months, even though the authors said they would after the IETF meeting five months ago. My feeling from that is that the authors have lost interest, and maybe the WG has as well.

The purpose of the draft has shifted significantly. The -02 draft changed from "requirements" to "requirements and considerations". The meat of the draft (Section 5) is no longer requirements, but "features"; however, there are still MUST and SHOULDs among those features.

If the WG continues to work on this document, it would be good to first say what it's new purpose is (such as requirements on solutions documents), and whether it should be expected to be published as an RFC or just kept as a checklist before the WG moves other documents forward.
