I support Brian's Discuss.

1)  In Sec 1.1, it states "...in homenet environments where multiple IPv6

   source-prefixes can be present, routing based on source and
   address is necessary [RFC7368]."
   Looking at RFC7368, I don't see anything that matches the strength of
   assertion which says in Sec 3.2.4 merely  "Another avenue is to
introduce support
   throughout the homenet for routing that is based on the source as
   well as the destination address of each packet."

   While src-dest routing is certainly a solution - and an interesting
one - it doesn't
   seem at all appropriate for an HNCP spec to assert that it is

2) For the DNCP profile,  draft-ietf-homenet-dncp-12 says  "Anything
received over multicast, except Node Endpoint TLV (Section 7.2.1) and
Network State TLV (Section 7.2.2)." and this draft says "HNCP nodes MUST
ignore all Node State TLVs received via multicast
 on a link which has DNCP security enabled in order to prevent spoofing
of node state changes."
Could you please align and clarify the desired behavior for HNCP?
