Summary: Ready for publication as Proposed Standard with one minor nit

This is a very easy to read document for such a detail-rich protocol.

Nit:

The introduction calls out email addresses as an example of the kinds of 
strings these methods are not intended for use in preparing (along with 
LDAP distinguished names). But in the body of the document, email 
addresses (or strings that look just like them) are discussed as valid 
examples of usernames.
