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 Session Description Protocol (SDP) provides a general-purpose
format for describing multimedia sessions in announcements or invitations.
This ID defines two new protocol identifiers for the File Delivery over Unidirectional Transport
(FLUTE) protocol and other required SDP attributes for initiation of a FLUTE session.

No security considerations are introduced other than those already pertaining
to SDP or FLUTE.  So I do not believe that this ID needs any further attention from
a security point of view.
