This document appears to be mature and ready for publication.
Just a handful of housekeeping observations:

The material in sections 1.1 and 1.2 appears to be the same or
nearly the same as the material in Section 2 in
draft-ietf-nfsv4-pnfs-layout. It would be nice if flex-files
could reference that document instead of including the repeated

Section 3.1: the code copyright is 2012. Should it be updated
to 2017, or perhaps 2012-2017 ?

Has it been confirmed that the XDR code contained in the most
recent revision of this document compiles with rpcgen?
