Hi,

Thanks for this revision and for addressing my comments already in
version  -03.

Please, see below some more comments on this version -04.

Best,
/Marco


* s/There are one or more missing CBOR encoded missing block
numbers./There are one or more CBOR encoded missing block numbers.


*  Section 4 now includes the new paragraph: "The token to use for the
response SHOULD be the token that was used in the highest block number
received payload.  The Q-Block1 Option from the same packet SHOULD be
included."

   Consistently, the example in Figure 5 should also have QB1:3/0/1024
in the 4.08 response with Token T:0xe3, and QB1:1/1/1024 in the 4.08
response with Token T:0xe4.

   Since "SHOULD" is used, when is it still fine or expected to not
include Q-Block1 in a 4.08 response?


* When commenting the example in Figure 5, Section 9.1 reads: "The Token
just needs to be one of those that have been received for this
Request-Tag, so the client can derive the Request-Tag."

   Should this not be aligned with the SHOULD used in Section 4 about
using the Token from the same packet conveying the highest block number?
  
   You explained in your mail that the client keeps tracking all Tokens
in the burst anyway, so maybe it's better to rather align the text in
Section 4 with what suggested here in Section 9.1, i.e. responding with
any of those Token values is just fine.
  
   In such a case, the Q-Block1 option included in the 4.08 response has
still to be the one from the request conveying the highest block number.
Correct?


* The new text in Section 6.2 says: "... and the situation re-evaluated
for another 24 hour period until there is no report of missing payloads
under normal operating conditions."

   When that happens, I suppose MAX_PAYLOADS is right away restored to
the intended value, i.e. it is not incremented by 1 to start another
24-hour period evaluation. Correct?


* Section 6.2 says: "The request that the client sends to acknowledge
the receipt of all the current set of MAX_PAYLOADS payloads SHOULD
contain a special case Q-Block2 Option with NUM set to the first block
of the next set of MAX_PAYLOADS payloads and the M bit set to 1."

  Is it possible to reflect this in the example of Figure 6? It would
require the body to have more than MAX_PAYLOADS blocks thus resulting in
more bursts, which would be inherited by the examples in Figure 7 and
Figure 8.


* In Section 9, it would be good to have the parameters defined in
Section 6.2 and their values reflected in the examples, when applicable.
E.g., MAX_PAYLOADS is at least 4 in these examples; the asked
retransmissions are presumably due sometimes to MAX_PAYLOADS compared
against the value of the latest received Q-Block1/Q-Block2, while
sometimes to NON_RECEIVE_TIMEOUT.


* In the example in Figure 6, shouldn't the first request from the
client have the M bit set to 1 in the Q-Block2 option, i.e. as
QB2:0/1/1024 ? As per Section 3.4, that would indicate that the request
is in fact for the block 0 and for all of the remaining blocks within
the body.

>> * Somewhere (never comes up but I think it should): When CONs are used,
