Please see inline for some responses….

I’m not sure we need to make any questions compulsory.  Hopefully folks will answer most/all the questions.

>>> - should the anonymous question come before we ask names etc?

Yes, I think that the question about anonymity should come before asking for the name/contact info.  I do think we should still ask for the name/contact info, even if they indicate they want to complete it anonymously, as supplying this personal info will probably make people feel a bit more accountable and so will likely give their replies a bit more consideration.  I think we should clarify what we mean by “anonymously” by changing the question to: 
“Do you wish to complete the survey anonymously (in which case you will not be identified in the report)?"  

>>> - should the issues with fallback be a y/n answer (as is) or a “What issues have you had with…” free text?

I think the free text idea is better. 

>>> - I added a final “any other comments” type question.  Is that ok?

Yep, good idea.

Also, some other thoughts…...

I think we should change:
Would you like to complete the part of the survey targeted at vendors and host implementors? 
+ Yes
+ No
Which part of the survey would you like to complete?  The part targeted at
+ Vendor and host implementors?
+ Network operators?

In case they find our list insufficient, should we add a box in which they can write in “Any other feature” after the list we provide for the “Which IGMPv3 and MLDv2 features do you use?” question?

Will numbering the questions help processing the results etc?

Also, should we put a contact email address at the start in case people have questions?  Perhaps the WG chairs?  Or your own?
