DISCUSS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I realize I'm missing a lot of history and context here. So apologies
if this was discussed in the past. But this document seems to be completely
outside of the current HIP charter. Why has the WG worked on this, and why
should this be published? I'll note that the only IETF document referencing
draft-ietf-hip-dex is draft-ietf-hip-rfc4423, and the reference is an appendix
that basically summarizes -dex and is not normative. So not publishing this
document will not block any other work.

All comments below are very minor change suggestions that you may choose to
incorporate in some way (or ignore), as you see fit. There is no need to let me
know what you did with these suggestions.
