Section 4

[Roman already covered the question about what the "required security"
from 7308 is, so I won't duplicate that]

         The advertisement of the link attribute information defined
   in this document presents no significant additional risk beyond that
   associated with the existing link attribute information already
   supported in [RFC7752].

This seems like the key point to make in this section, and might be
promoted to appear first.

I do think there is some additional risk (perhaps not significant,
though) in going from original AG to EAG, mostly in the form of the
repeated information in the first 32 bits and risk of skew between them.
It seems that the IESG comments on RFC 7038
(https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc7308/ballot/) included some useful
suggestions for security considerations, but they were not acted on at
that time.  We could still choose to incorporate them now, since the
considerations are basically identical for BGP-LS as for the IGPs that
7038 covered.
