I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the
security area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat
these comments just like any other last call comments.

The I-D documents requirements for extensions of the data tracker and
as such has no impact on the security of the Internet at large. The
Security Considerations section spells out privacy concerns for users
of the data tracker although it does not require that security
protocols are mandatory to implement for the data tracker, which is
kind of what I expected this document would say.
