Just so I’m following along:

- This draft replaces the text in RFC 6487 s7.2 so should rpki-validation-reconsidered draft include the “Updates: 6487 (if approved)” header?  My understanding is that the proposal is that all RPKI validators follow these new steps so that would make sense process wise.

- bgpsec-pki-profiles s3.3 currently refers to RFC 6487 s7 for validation procedures and technically if rpki-validation-reconsidered updates RFC 6487 when bgpsec-pki-profiles refers to RFC 6487 it includes those references so I wouldn’t necessarily have to add a explicit reference to rpki-validation-reconsidered … but people will forget this and miss the update and I know Wes hates chasing references ;)  So, to drive this point home we could do the following tweak in addition to adding your suggested bullet and separate-certificate per ASN suggestion:


  The validation procedure used for BGPsec Router Certificates is
  identical to the validation procedure described in Section 7 of
  [RFC6487], but using the constraints applied come from this


  The validation procedure used for BGPsec Router Certificates is
  identical to the validation procedure described in Section 7 of
  [ID.sidr-rpki-validation-reconsidered], but using the constraints
  applied come from this specification.

Note I’d probably also add ID.idr-rpki-validation-reconsidered to the required reading list in the terminology section :/
