Summary: Ready with issues


I note that this is being raised from Experimental to the standards track. 
Presumably that depends on the base LISP spec becoming PS.

Minor issues:

"This document updates I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis." The text doesn't
explain which text is updated. This is in contrast to RFC8113, which
explains clearly how it updates RFC6830 (*not* RFC6833). Why doesn't
this draft claim to update rfc6830bis? I'm going to assume that
is an error.

In fact, why wasn't the definition of the LISP Packet Types registry
moved into the base spec (rfc6830bis)? That is where it belongs.

Since rfc6830bis (and rfc6833bis) are still under IESG review, anything
in them that needs updating should be updated! The fact is that rfc8113bis
extends rfc6830bis, which is not the same thing as "updates".
If the WG thinks that implementers of 6830bis need to read 8113bis,
there should be a normative reference in 6830bis to 8113bis.
