I made a (late) review of draft-ietf-oauth-proof-of-possession-06  and as with draft-ietf-oauth-pop-architecture-05 I think it’s in really good shape and it’s not much to comment on.

The only thing that I could mention is that the introduction of the “jwk” member in the following text is a bit abrupt:

When the key held by the presenter is an asymmetric private key, the
   "jwk" member is a JSON Web Key (JWK) [JWK<https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-proof-of-possession-06#ref-JWK>] representing the
   corresponding asymmetric public key.

It’s the first time the member is introduced. Same on “jwe".

Otherwise, as I said. It’s in really good shape.
