Dear all,

Please find here the document shepherd review of

Draft is not ready for submitting it to the AD, as it has a few items to 
be checked first which are formal issues and but no technical flaws!

1) ID nits has a number of issues, noteable these:

a) The copyright year in the IETF Trust and authors Copyright Line does 
not match the current year
b) The document doesn't use any RFC 2119 keywords, yet has text 
resembling RFC 2119 boilerplate text.
c) Found something which looks like a code comment -- if you have code 
sections in the document, please surround them with '<CODE BEGINS>' and 
'<CODE ENDS>' lines.

a) is easily fixable, when recompiling the draft

b) This is a bigger issue:
The draft specifies a number of protocol behaviors, but is never using 
any of the RFC 2119 keywords. While not using the RFC 2119 keywords is 
acceptable for an experimental draft it is troublesome on the long run. 
The intention is for sure to move this draft to standards track, once 
the experimental phase is over. However, at this later stage RFC 2119 
key words will be required.

c) a bit of work, but easily fixable.

Other comments beyond idnits:

- Section It says that the constantns are deduced from 
experiments. In what context have these experiments been specified, 
carried out and documented? Is this something you can refer you? The 
current text is a bit underspecified in that respect.

- Section, page 10, bottom:
      Min target bitrate [bps].

      Max target bitrate [bps].

I assume that the notion [bps] shall introduce the unit of this 
constant. Please specify that this is the notion you are using for 
specifying the unit.

- Section 9. IANA Considerations:
This is not section for IANA but more a question for the WG. Please 
remove the text from this section and place it in a new section "Open 
Issues" or similar. There is currently no request to IANA. Please state 
just this and the request to remove the section before publication as RFC.

- Appendix A.4 looks like a regular section, with the note that this is 
an experimental version and needs further vetting during the 
experimentation period, isn't it?
