Summary: Ready with nits

Nits/editorial comments:

Shouldn't the IANA considerations instruct IANA to update the registries 
to update the three rows that currently point to 6112 to point to this 
document instead (or at least in addition to 6112)?

Micro-nit: There is a 2119 MUST carried forward from RFC6112 that could 
be improved if the group is willing. "Care MUST be taken by the TGS to 
not reveal". I would suggest "The TGS MUST NOT reveal...". If you need 
to further highlight care, add a sentence that says "Implementers need 
to be particularly careful when addressing this requirement." It is a 
very small nit - please feel free to ignore it.
