Thanks for clearing up my confusion on the DISCUSS point that I had, and for
posting -18 with resolutions to that and my comments.

I’ll leave the remaining comment here for the record, leaving it for the
editors to do what they think best.

   In the case Length minus Offset is 0 every address matches.  Length
   MUST always be in the range 0-128 and Length minus Offset MUST always
   be 0 or more, otherwise this component is malformed.

Is there actually value in allowing 129 ways to match every address
(length=offset=0, length=offset=1, length=offset=87, and so on)?  If not, it
seems less prone to error to say that length=offset=0 matches every address,
and otherwise length MUST be greater than offset or the component is malformed.
