Summary: This document deprecates older versions of TLS and DTLS. It also
updates many RFCs that normatively refer to the older TLS/DTLS versions.

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments: In section 1.1, typo in "waas defined to detect".

Most references to RFCs are of the form "[RFC7507]". Can we change "RFC 7457
[RFC7457]" to "[RFC7457]" for uniformity. Similarly, perhaps you could change
"RFC5246 [RFC5246]" and "RFC4346 [RFC4346]" to "[RFC5246]" and "[RFC4346]".

In section 2 "NIST for example have provided " should be "..has provided...".

In section 6 "this document is called out specifically to update text
implementing the deprecation  recommendations of this document." I was
initially confused with the repeated usage of "this". Perhaps it would help to
be more explicit.
