Summary: This draft is almost ready for publication as a standard track RFC.



Major issues:


Minor issues:

In section 6.1 " If specified more than once, instances preceding the first
will be ignored and condition SHOULD be logged for possible action by the
network operator."  I am not sure what is meant by preceding the first.



Nits/editorial comments:


1.	The following note appears in section 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3. "Note
that the same values for the Inter-RA Export Upward sub-TLV and the Inter-RA
Export Downward Sub-TLV MUST be used when they appear in the Link TLV, Node
Attribute TLV, and Router Address TLV." - why not have it in section 10
before section 10.1.
2.	I saw in appendix  B that one of the changes from RFC 5787 was to
clarify the terminology before defining extensions, I would have found it
easier to read if the ASON hierarchy and the relation to OSPF in section 2
were presented in figures. This was more an issue to me as a reader not
familiar with the terminology and I would like to think that the more
familiar reader will not have problem.
