Summary: Ready

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments:
 - section 2 page 2: please add RFC 8174 with RFC 2119
  (note this can (should?) be done by the RFC Editor)

 - 7.3 page 10: I have a mixed feeling about the "must". As the problem
 is real some could want a MUST but the attack is both an example (so
 the defense too) and against a feature which is not the subjet of
 the document. I have no good proposal so I leave this to the security
