Dear Authors,

Thanks for the draft. IMO, P2P traffic in RPL is an important work and a weak-point of RPL.

One comment regarding link asymmetry and how the draft takes care of it.. 
The draft talks about sending route control messages (RREQ-instance message) from OrigNode to TargNode to enable data transmission from TargNode to OrigNode (section 4) i.e. send message downstream to identify upstream path, like the way RPL DIO msg flows downstream to identify upstream path.
Isn't this orthogonal to the requirements of asymmetric link detection? Can a node make a reachability assumption towards an upstream peer on receiving msg from that upstream peer?
In case of P2P-RPL (RFC 6997), there is a clear assumption about bidirectional reachability. To quote, "Since the links in the discovered route have bidirectional reachability (Section 7), the Target may use the discovered route to reach the Origin."
How does the draft address this problem and handle asymmetric bidirectional routes?

Hello folks,

We have submitted AODV-RPL for consideration in the [roll] WG. AODV-RPL borrows some ideas from AODV and also handles asymmetric bidirectional routes.  Comments and suggestions will be appreciated!
