Questions and notes:

[ section 3.2 ]

* Does "IPENC" need to be officially recorded in an official registry
somewhere?  Or has this already been done and a link to it can be
included in this draft?

I wasn't able to find this word in the APRS PDF linked to in the references.

[ section 5 ]

* Can you explain more about the limitations on non-NULL encryption?

My intuition would be that ESP with non-NULL encryption provides
privacy only on the IP links between tunnel endpoints.  A packet that
failed to decrypt properly would not be transmitted over the amateur
radio link, but rather be dropped by the IP endpoint (and possibly
logged).  I don't think I follow what the intent of this section is.

* I cannot find the phrase "dead peer detection" in RFC 7926, nor is
