I had made some minor comments on the wording (MUST, SHOULD) which I believe we wanted advice from the AD on so Mani knew whether to accept it.

I also had suggested one very minor change to the content which I hope Mani is ok with accepting.

Let me know if you need that email resent.

Otherwise, very happy!

If folks are generally happy with this revision, I think the path forward is that Pasi Sarolahti agreed to do a shepherd review / writeup.  That was back at the Paris IETF, so he might have changed his mind by then :).

If any of the authors or advocates will be in Orlando at the next IETF meeting, it would be nice to give TCPM a 5 minute recap of the current status, just so they know what happened since it left the WG as a proposal there.  If nobody else will be there (or nobody wants to do it!), I'd be happy to briefly explain it's state.

Since it's unclear who will replace me as AD in March, it might be a good idea to work kind of quick on this, so that I can get it as far along with the IESG as possible before March.  I suspect there will be trouble in the IESG on this, as recent experience with the TCPM experimental options draft suggests ...
