Version 8 resolved my discuss point for section 3.4. Thanks!

I don't think it resolved my discuss point for 3.2. I'm clearing anyway,
because I think my point has been made. I would prefer the language to
say that anything not explicitly marked as non-confidential in the
relevant data model MUST be sent over a protected transport. But I will
leave it to the authors to do the right thing.

I will leave my non-discuss comments below for reference. I think version
8 resolves at least some of them. Any remaining are up to you; none of
them are show stoppers.

-2.1: I am on the fence about other's comments about copying definitions
here--but if you do copy them here, it seems strange to not mention
"client" or "agent".

I agree with Alissa about equating privacy and confidentiality.

I’m confused by the first paragraph. I don’t find strings of the form of
SEC-REQ-XX in 7921. I think _this_ doc sets these requirements, right?

It’s not clear to me how 5 and 6 differ. Is it just a matter of the
additional “before establishing a connection” part in 6?

-3.4: Isn't 15 simply a restatement of the third item under 14?

3.5: The  MAYs in 19 and 20 seem like statements of fact. (That is, do
they simply recognize reality, or to they  grant permission?)
