Please refer to https://www.ietf.org/iesg/statement/discuss-criteria.html
for more information about IESG DISCUSS and COMMENT positions.

The document, along with other ballot positions, can be found here:


Section 1

   connected to the same network.  Consider for example a traveler
   wanting to upload pictures from a phone to a laptop when connected to
   the Wi-Fi network of an Internet cafe, or two travelers who want to

[both devices are on the same Wi-Fi, right?]

   Disclosing Information  In this document "disclosing information" is
      also focused on disclosure by data conveyed via messages on the
      service discovery protocol layer.

This is generic non-identity but still potentially sensitive data,

Section 3.2

   kinds of means for making DNS-SD resource records available.  These
   means comprise but are not limited to mDNS [RFC6762], DNS servers
   ([RFC1033] [RFC1034], [RFC1035]), e.g. using SRP
   [I-D.ietf-dnssd-srp], and multi-link [RFC7558] networks.

nit: this "e.g." seems out of place.

Section 3.2.2

There is, of course, also no authentication requirement to claim a
particular instance name, so an active attacker can provide resources
that claim to be Alice's but are not.

Section 3.3.2

This sort of problem frequently ends up with a third-party "trusted
introducer", though it's not clear that mentioning this in the document
will add value.


I'm given to understand that for many radio technologies, multicast is
both effectively broadcast and has specific spectrum
requirements/properties that make it especially scarce, compared to
unicast spectrum.
