My understanding is that although the default values of SOL_MAX_RT and INF_MAX_RT were the same in RFC 3315, and now they are change to similar values, there is no mandatory behavior defined for servers to set them at the same values using the new override options. If this is the case then the Abstract should say

Dan, your understanding that SOL_MAX_RT and INF_MAX_RT are allowed to have independent values is correct.  The document originally addressed SOL_MAX_RT and I missed  the text you cite when I updated the doc to include INF_MAX_RT.  I'll make your suggested changes in the next rev of the doc.

I could not find anything in the dhc WG charter that corresponds to this document, so I cannot say whether this document meets the conditions of the 'contract with the IESG'. Actually the charter seems not to have been updated for five years, if not more. I guess that with Ralph as an author all is OK, but an update of the charter seems to be needed.

In my opinion, this document falls under the following clause of the dhc WG charter:

   However, the DHC WG can in some cases develop its own options that 
relate to either maintenance of existing specifications or 
   improvements in the operation of the DHCP infrastructure itself.

Regarding the charter more generally, the WG is currently in the process of rechartering.

Tomek and Bernie can add detail or correct me...

Thanks for catching that typo.
