I have read this document. I have not attempted to implement the 
described mechanism. With that proviso, I find the text clear and 
well-written. I have no suggestions for improvement. I think the ZONEMD 
mechanism is useful. I think the document is ready for publication.

I don't object to the intended status (standards track). There are 
reports of multiple independent implementations included in the 
document, which seems pleasing and proper.
