Summary: This document is almost ready for publication as some form of RFC

Major issues:
    This document defines protocol extensions and mandatory procedures to go
    with them.  As such, it seems it is either Experimental or Proposed
    Standard, but not Informational.

Minor issues:
    Section 5 consists of a list of behavioral requirements that appear
    normative, but do not use RFC 2119 language.  If these are indeed normative
    behavioral requirements, the document should use RFC 2119 language to be
    clear.  (And therefore, should also include the text explaining and citing
    RFC 2119.)

   The description in 7.2.1 of the EPP <create> command seems lacking.  After
   saying that it needs an extension element, it says:
        The <extension> element SHOULD contain a child <b-dn:create> element
        that identifies the bundle namespace and the location of the bundle
        name schema.
It is unclear when it is reasonable to omit this <b-dn:create> element.  (We
normally include with "SHOULD" explanations of this sort.) It is unspecified
what format of the information in the <b-dn:create> element has.  I suspect
that it is assumed to be the same as some other piece of EPP information, but
it does not say so.  The only child element for <b-dn:create> given in the
schema is the <b-dn:rdn> which is neither a namespace identifier nor a location
of the bundle name schema.

    Again in 7.2.2 on the EPP <delete> command, when discussing the addition to
    the response, it is a SHOULD with no explanation of when it is okay to omit
    it.  The same applies to the 7.2.3 EPP <renew> command, the 7.2.4 EPP
    <transfer> command, and the 7.2.5 EPP <update> command.
