Hi Oliver, Fabien,

I've read the draft and I am having the following comments on the draft.

1: Reliability
    DSS option doesn't have to be set on all data packets. So, I think
there'll be a good chance to use ADD_ADDR in data packets in most cases.
Also, I am not very sure if we really need to echo back the option for
reliability. Can't we just send ADD_ADDR several times when we are not sure?

   I think MP_PRIO can be sent from other flow by using address id. Isn't
it possible to send ADD_ADDR and MP_PRIO almost the same time?

3: Priority
   I might want to know the use case of this. I would like to know how
having multiple priority can be useful.

4: Path Diversity
   I think path diversity can be varied by routing. Even if two addresses
use the same interface, they might be forwarded to different routes. We
might not be sure if they share common resources.

5: Load Balancing
   A question would be if we want to allocate a flag in MP_CAPABLE for a
single use case.
   I am wondering if we can utilize MP_PRIO to indicate that this is a
"no_join" path, which will be easier for allocating resource.
