Summary: This draft is ready for publication as a Proposed Standard RFC.

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments: Two clarifications, one typo:


    Type - S-BFD Discriminator TLV Type
    Type - S-BFD Discriminator TLV Type (TBD [to be filled in by IANA])

    Length - Total length of the discriminator (Value field) in octets,
    not including the optional padding.  The Length is a multiple of 4
    octets, and consequently specifies how many Discriminators are
    included in the TLV.
    Length - Total length of the discriminator(s) that appear in the
    Value field, in octets. Each discriminator is 4 octets, so the 
    is 4 times the number of Discriminators included in the TLV. There 
    no optional padding for this field.


    Note that the S-BFD session may be required to pan multiple areas
    Note that the S-BFD session may be required to span multiple areas
