Thanks for the review Flemming,

I've made changes as suggested below, which you can review here:

All the changes I have made are on if you want to see the entire batch of changes.

Can do.

"For 3PCC to work with the proposed mechanisms, TLS peers need to be aware of the
signaling so that they can correctly generate (and check) the extension.  Peers
need access to any identity assertions present in signaling in order to perform
the checks in {{external_id_hash}}.  To perform the checks in
{{external_session_id}}, a 3PCC system needs to ensure that guarantee that peers
use the same SDP `tls-id` attribute value."

Bo made the same comment.  I moved it up and expanded it a little.

The previous paragraph says "it is assumed that the attacker also controls the signaling channel."  As I mentioned in my other mail, when there is an identity binding, we assume that the signaling service is an attacker.  I've made some edits to the corresponding introductory text in response to Bo's review.  Let me know if you think that clears things up, or could be improved.
