Feedback is - always - very welcomed enthusiastically, of course. I am not quite sure what you ask/suggest, but do let me know any and all suggestions.

More generally, I am not sure that the direction you propose ("guidance to an inexperienced developer or deployer") is the right direction for the document. I actually believe that many of the issues, which draft-clausen-lln-rpl-experiences describes, are well beyond what can be classified as "potential pitfalls for an inexperienced developer or deployer", but rather are artifacts and consequences of the RPL protocol design choices, documented. And I think that these need to be documented.

Best,

Thomas
