Thank you for putting in the effort to update the draft based on LC
comments received.  Please let the WG know when you think all open
issues are addressed and we will do a 1 or 2 week 2nd LC depending on
timing relative to IETF100


Please don't wait for the 2nd LC -- review this document and confirm
that your previous comments have been addressed, and let the WG know if
you have comments on the other changes.

Thank you,
