# Éric Vyncke, INT AD, comments for draft-ietf-openpgp-crypto-refresh-12

Thank you for the work put into this document. The content is above my
expertise, hence I only did a quick review (else I would have balloted YES).
The reviewed content is usually easy to read.

Please find below some non-blocking COMMENT points (but replies would be
appreciated even if only for my own education).

I hope that this review helps to improve the document,



# COMMENTS (non-blocking)

## The most concise shepherd's write-up

The justification for the intended status is just "PS"... not even expanded...

## Abstract

Isn't the 2nd paragraph (especially the first sentence) applicable to all
standards track document? I.e., why not removing it ? (and I have noted the
very rough consensus about this I-D based on the shepherd write-up).

## Section 3.5

Should another time epoch be specified ? Using the 1970 Unix epoch will cause a
problem in 2038, a not too distant future. Why didn't this revised OpenPGP
propose alternative epoch ?

## IANA registries

Should this I-D be an opportunity to reserve some registry values for a FCFS
allocation ?
