== COMMENTS ==

-- Section 3 --
C.1) Is it "Flags Bits" (two "s") as in figure 1 or "Flag bits" (one "s") as in
the text ?

C.2) Shouldn't PIM Ver and Checksum fields be described?

-- Section 4.2 --
C.2) I am a tad inconfortable to have "bits" of a field named "flag bits" to be
used for sub-type. For me, "bits" are completely unstructured and atomic and
using 4 of those bits to build a 4-bit field does not seem natural. Rather than
naming the field "flags bits" what about "special purpose bits" or something
similar ?
