COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for addressing my first discussion point and comments. I still have a
concern on the second discuss point:

§7.2:
   o  The verification of the signature MUST include means of verifying
      that the signer is authoritative for the signed content of the
      resource priority namespace in the PASSporT."

The authors explained via email that they expect this to depend on some ATIS
work. I understand that such work is in progress, but has not reached the point
of being citable. I don't want to see this document blocked on that work, so I
cleared my discuss. However, I still think it would be a good idea to add some
scoping text early in the document to the effect that this mechanism is
intended for environments where some means of verifying that the signer is
authoritative is available. (In addition to keeping the normative text in §7.2)
