Alvaro: 

Thank you for your AD report. 

A bit thank you for  catching the major issue - that RFC8203 is being declared obsolete. 
(blush).   I'm sorry I missed that one. 

I'll work to try to fix the Cyrillic script. 

Cheerily, Susan Hares

Dear authors:

Thank you for this document!

I only have a couple of comments (see below).  I think these should be easy to address -- I'm starting the IETF Last Call.


Thanks!

Alvaro.

82	   It can be troublesome for an operator to correlate a BGP-4 [RFC4271]
83	   session teardown in the network with a notice that was transmitted
84	   via offline methods such email or telephone calls.  This document

275	   Feedback from operators based in regions which predominantly use

278	   failed to fit within the Length constraints as specified by
279	   [RFC8203].  For example, the phrase: 'Planned work to add switch to

290	   character string) has length 139 bytes.

[major] I looked at all the other versions and none of them rendered Cyrillic script.  I have no idea how to fix that, maybe ask the rfc-editor.  I also don't know if there's something special about the new v3 format that would make this easier...  I'll rely on the authors/Shepherd to solve this before approval.
