You have much in Appendix G. All appears to be legit issue to review. 
  Thanks for the addition of my recent comments. The only thing that 
stood out and can't get it out of my mind, is the change to the 
Acknowledgments. I personally don't feel good about it. But as part of 
my stress reduction therapy, I just deleted a paragraph describing my 
feeling about that change. I will just say, it has served as a "small 
badge" of honor to be recognized as a long time participant and 
implementor of SMTP for a number of decades.

+1 I think I-D -03 should be submitted before IETF 107 for the reasons 
you stated.
