I know this comes late in the process, but the attached comment
on draft-ietf-6renum-enterprise actually identifies a gap
in the gap analysis.

Yes, this should be covered in the gap analysis draft.

I spotted several grammar and vocabulary problems which I did not list as these are our of the scope of an OPS-DIR review, and the RFC Editor will certainly do a fine job, but in some cases these problems distort the sense of the sentences - for example ' This work is illuminated by RFC5887, so thank for RFC 5887 authors' this is probably ' This work is inspired by (or derived from)  RFC5887, so thanks to RFC 5887 authors'
