Thanks for a very clear document that was an easy read.  I just have a few very
minor editorial suggestions, which need no specific reply:

— Section 2.1 —

   Source discovery
   in SSM is handled by some out-of-band mechanism (i.e., the
   application layer)

The “i.e.” seems a bit odd here to my eye.  I’d suggest wording this without
the parentheses altogether, thus:

   Source discovery
   in SSM is handled by some out-of-band mechanism in the
   application layer

— Section 2.3 —

   PIM-SSM expects that the sender's source address(es) is known in
   advance by receivers

The “is” sounds odd with “addresses”, and it’s always difficult to know what to
do for number agreement with things such as “address(es)”.  I suggest writing
around the problem this way:

   PIM-SSM expects the sender's source address(es) to be known in
   advance by receivers

— Section 3.2.2 —
There needs to be a hyphen in “network-wide”.

— Section 4.1 —

   This document recommends that the use of ASM is deprecated for
   interdomain multicast

This needs subjunctive mood: “that the use of ASM be deprecated”.
