DISCUSS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I think this document needs to state explicitly which updates apply to which
existing RFCs. That is, I would expect to see in sections 2.1,  2.2, and 2.3
the list of which documents are updated by each section. I realize this can be
intuited, but typically for avoidance of doubt authors specify precisely which
updates apply to which documents. This will also clear up the unused references
that idnits is pointing out.

I would also like to  understand why this is going for BCP. There is
effectively no shepherd write-up for this draft (it's just a copy of the
write-up for draft-ietf-dnsop-attrleaf and talks about this document as the
"companion" document) so there is no explanation there. One effect of this
being BCP is that it adds a huge number of documents to the downref registry.
It's not clear to me that the upside of that is bigger than the downside.

COMMENT:

Sections 2.1, 2.2, 2.3: I don't understand why the paragraphs "If a public
specification that defines ... MUST be entered into this registry, if it is not
already registered" are needed, since the same normative requirement is
generically stated in draft-ietf-dnsop-attrleaf.
