The draft updates the BGP Monitoring Protocol BMP by adding access to the
Adj-RIB-Out RIBs. There are some unclear areas that need authors to clarify.

Major issues:

Minor issues:

Section 1 last paragraph:
It is not clear if BMP sender send to multiple BMP receivers  or just  to one
"BMP receiver". The first part of the sentence says "..send to a BMP
receivers", the second part says ".. advertise to BGP peers, .."

Suggest to make it consistent, such as sending  to multiple, or just one.   "..
to send to BMP receivers what it advertises.."

Does a BMP sender also send out Adj-RIB-In? it is not clear to.

Section 6 first sentence: just curious which BMP messages are NOT applicable to
Adj-RIB-In or Adj-RIB-out?   If it is specified in other documents, please add
a reference.

Nits/editorial comments:

Thank you.
