I have a couple of comments on the format of the document:

#1) The reference section has no normative references but also lists 
about 10 references that aren't categorized as either normative or 
informative.

#2) According to ID-nits, there are a bunch of references listed that 
aren't used:

== Unused Reference: 'I-D.ietf-ltans-ltap' is defined on line 1470, 
but no explicit reference was found in the text

== Unused Reference: 'RFC5280' is defined on line 1494, but no 
explicit reference was found in the text

== Unused Reference: 'RFC5652' is defined on line 1499, but no 
explicit reference was found in the text

== Unused Reference: 'MIME' is defined on line 1516, but no explicit 
reference was found in the text

== Unused Reference: 'RFC3470' is defined on line 1520, but no 
explicit reference was found in the text

#2) The section numbers is a bit odd.  It goes Section 7, Appendix A, 
Section 8.  I think Appendix A needs to be moved to the back of the 
document.
