The additional author has made a number of improvements to the security
section, as well as other minor tweaks such as references.  Good!

There was an odd change from TBD-40XX (and 80XX) to TBD-40YY (and 80ZZ).
While there's no _technical_ requirement the last 2 digits are the same,
traditionally we've kept them the same.  Hopefully IANA will handle this

However, as I've previously requested, there should probably be a mention
of the exact sections of ISIS that refer to uniqueness, and a more full
explanation of why there can be problems here.

I'm still planning on posting a "considered harmful" response as soon as
it's published, concerning the lack of automatic identifier resolution.
