This document is ready as a Proposed Standard with two minor nits.

Major: 0
Minor: 2
Nits:  0

- S3.2,, first paragraph: "No message is ever sent from the monitoring
    station to the monitored router."
  You mean "No BMP message is ever sent from the monitoring station to
  the monitored router."?  I suspect that the monitoring station can send
  TCP messages (SYN, ACK, etc.) to the monitored router in order to open
  up the TCP connection, no?

- S3.2, last paragraph: "If the monitoring station intends to end or
    restart BMP processing, it simply drops the connection, optionally
    with a Termination message."
  The monitoring station cannot send a (BMP?) message to the monitored
  router, right?  If so, I don't understand the utility of the
  Termination method above.
