As requested here follows my review.

The document is generally well written and understandable.

Introduction: I know that we are not supposed to say how a LMA uses the info contained in an ANI but more context (references) would not harm. Why talking about 802.11 only?

Section 3: If how the MAG discovers ANI from attached MNs is out of scope then you should state DHCP method as an example. There are other ways of doing this, or you list all of them.

Section 4: why not defining a generic ANI option not specific to WIFI? Else we should clearly make the IF WIFI specific.

Had a couple of issues more that Carlos already mentioned.
