Other Comments:

At the end of Section 1, the document says: "Each protocol listens on
its own UDP port and executes its own unique procedures."  What does
"unique" mean here?  What changes if "unique" is dropped from this

Would it be more obvious to the reader the purpose of Section 6 if it
were turned into an appendix?
