Summary: This draft is ready as an Proposed Standard.

Major issues: 0
Minor issues: 1
Nits/editorial comments: 2

Minor issue:
- S5, second paragraph --- "The procedures outlined in this section are
  designed so that the incoming side will always reset their stream
  sequence number first before the outgoing side which means the re-
  configuration request must always originate from the outgoing side."

  Here, I am not sure what "incoming" and "outgoing" side mean.  Both
  SCTP server and client will have an "incoming" side and "outgoing"
  side. So, which peer's outgoing side are we talking about?

- Abstract (and same text is repeated in S1: Introduction):
  s/to the upper layer that this has been/
  to the application layer that the reset has been/

- Abstract:
  s/The applications that want this/Applications requiring this/
