I've read through draft-irtf-mobopts-l2-abstractions-03, and I find it
almost but not quite ready for publication.

Keeping in mind that I am not particularly expert in mobile computing,
the content seems fine.  It needs a careful copy-edit to fix some
language problems that are distracting and occasionally ambiguous.  For
example, page 6 defines PoA as "the attachment point of a mobile node".
PoA presumably stands for Point of Attachment, and it just seems odd to
have the abbreviation and definition not match.  More seriously, there are
places where the complexity of English syntax leads to confusion.  For
example, on page 3 the last sentence of the first paragraph reads "a
layer can evenly communicate with each other", which I think is trying to
say that the communication between layers is symmetrical, but I'm not
sure.  A careful copy edit, in consultation with the authors to be sure
the ambiguities are resolved correctly, should solve this.

Appendix B appears to contain two paper examples and one report of an
experiment.  They're all fine, but it would be helpful to explain either
why they tested the third example or why they didn't test the first two.

None of these problems are major, and I expect all could be fixed in one
more editing pass.
