I don't think it's the IETF's place to recommend a system engineering
methodology.
As best I read the comment he's saying either:

1) What you say about security technologies is fine

2) You should say nothing about security technologies

and then he's arguing what process you should recommend.

We as a subset of the IETF should only say things that are in the IETF's
scope.  I'd read this comment as a commen that you seem to have
succeeded in doing what you set out to do but that he wishes you had
chosen to do something different.  You probably don't want to make that
change in direction, so I'd indicate you've considered the comment but
disagree that sort of direction shift would be appropriate for something
coming from the IETF.
