I think it's ready to publish with one small caveat.  In section 5.1,
the text in the box says "resolvers MAY use NSEC/NSEC3 resource
records" and the text in the next paragraph says "the resolver SHOULD
use NSEC/NSEC3/wildcard records".  There's a similar MAY in the box in
section 7.

The authors SHOULD make up their minds.  Assuming they really believe
this is a good idea, change the MAY's to SHOULD.

R's,
John
