Reviewer: Stefan Santesson
Review result: Has Nits

In agreement with nit comments in the Gen-Art review.

1) Section 2. Background seems to be a duplication with the introduction
section and could probably be merged with this section.

2) In general I wander wether the requirement level "SHOULD" is to week in some
places. The concern (and question) here is whether this may lead to uncertainty
whether a Split-DNS configuration always will provide the expected level of
security (or fail), or wether such configuration may lead to successful
communication without the expected level of security ( in compliance with this
specification).
