I took a quick look at draft-ietf-homenet-hncp-bis-00, including a diff; seems the only change is to solve the .home problem.  I don't think I quite understand the new text and here's a suggested clarification:


  A default value for this TLV MUST be set, although
  the default value of the Domain-Name TLV (Section 10.6) is out of
  scope of this document, and an administrator MAY configure the
  announcement of a Domain-Name TLV for the network.


  The administrator MUST configure the announcement of a network-wide
  zone suffix through the Domain-Name TLV.

As far as I can tell, draft-ietf-homenet-hncp-bis-00 does not address errata 4718.  While this errata has not yet been verified, in my opinion *something* has to be done to correct the text around "Multicast DNS Proxy".  If "Multicast DNS Proxy" is intended to refer to "Hybrid Proxy" in draft-ietf-dnssd-hybrid-03, the appropriate normative reference will constitute a downref in draft-ietf-homenet-hncp-bis-00.
