When WG chair etc makes a request for an early review they will have
option to include comment that explains what they want the reviewer to
concentrate to.

So this text you are refering to is the one written by Aaron Falk when
he requested to early review and that included also comments like:

	The TAPS working group would appreciate early review from
	SecDir focusing on the correctness of the protocol
	descriptions and whether there are any significant gaps
	(protocols or features) in the coverage of the draft. The
	draft is nearing readiness for WGLC and some assurance from
	SecDir that there are no significant problems would be helpful
	before finalizing it. Please send comments to the TAPS wg
	<taps@ietf.org>rg>. Thanks!!

So that Comment section is not an abstract, it is additional text
provided by the requestor...

Looking at that comment and your review, I think your point about the
openvpn and openconnect are just what they were looking at, i.e., gaps
in their protocol list...
