An informational draft on endorsements seems like a good addition, so I support adoption. Two nits:

I’d prefer “observed state” to “current state” in most places throughout. This would be more consistent with the first sentence in the second paragraph of section 2.
 In the next to last paragraph of section 2.1, I’d change “sign Evidence” to “verify Evidence” where discussing trust anchors.

draft-dthaler-rats-endorsements-01 is now posted which makes the updates I mentioned
at IETF 116.  Notably it does not mention EAT or CORIM and only discusses endorsements
in general, like my presentation to the WG did, thanks to feedback from Ned and others.


>From IETF 116 minutes:
Dave to make an update, and then will ask for WG adoption.

Now that I have made the update, I would like to ask the WG for adoption.
It is quite short (6 pages).
