Summary: Ready, but with a process issue for the shepherd and AD to consider.

This version addressed all of my comments on version -16. Thank you.

However, the diff shows that a large number of SHOULDs were changed to MUSTs.
I'm guessing that was in response to a comment in the TSVART review of -16.
This large scale substitution makes me worry - are they really the right
adjustments? Has the group reviewed and agreed to these normative changes?

As a nit, I'll note that the additional description of heartbeating creeps into
specifying protocol rather than requirements.
