Phil,

> The proposed text works for me and I think is an interesting point to add - but I'm not sure it directly answers your point (I guess the answer is something like 'No information about MPTCP-tailored attacks' or 'no information that can be shared')

I haven't seen reports of actual attacks that tageted MPTCP or used 
MPTCP to perform an attack. The closests discussions that I'm aware of 
are the two references that I mentioned in the updated text

               Networks with Tomorrow's Protocols", Proc. Blackhat

> Olivier & authors - is it possible to do a new version of the document please - I think the Discuss and the other comments are quite easy to resolve, and it would be good to publish the document (finally!)

We have an updated text but I was expecting comments on this security 
part which is the main change that was requested by the reviewers
