COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,

thank you for this Document. I have a couple of questions

regarding:
   The absence of the Hop Count Data Item MUST be interpreted by the router as
   a Hop Count value of one (1).
I know it is a bit nit-picking but would it be worth explicitly saying that
this applies only in the case where the Multi-Hop Forwarding capability has
been successfully negotiated?

regarding:
   Once the change is made, or fails or is rejected, the modem MUST respond
   with a Session Update Response Message with an appropriate Status Code.
I think you should specify which status code to use depending on the situation.

In sections 3.2.2 and .3 you have a requirement that says: "... MUST NOT be
sent in a Session Update Message message" but in 3.2 you have some generic
piece of text which says:
   A modem that receives the Hop Control Data Item in a Session Update
   Message SHOULD take whatever actions are needed to make the change
   indicated by the data item for all known destinations.
So if a router does not respect the MUST NOT then a modem might try to take
some actions based on something it should have received. Maybe it would be
worth completing the "MUST NOT send" requirement with a "MUST discard/return
error/log" type of requirement.

By the way, I'm not sure that the should in "... SHOULD take whatever actions
..." should be in caps. The actions that to be taken are described in detail in
3.2.1 to 3.2.4 and are not all SHOULDs (MUST clear, SHOULD attempt to
establish, MUST suppress).

Thanks
