Hi Wes, 

Below some comments about the options as described in Section 3.1: 

* Consider adding some text to ACK the TCP option space problem. Adding a pointer to EDO as * an example * (without recommending it) of how to extend the space for non-SYNs would be useful.
* Add an explicit statement about 253/254 as being reserved for experiments with a strong recommendation to make use of shared ExIDs. 
* What about obsoleting (?) 6994 and incorporating its main contribution as part of 793bis?

Cheers,
Med

> Abstract:
>    This document specifies the Internet's Transmission Control Protocol
>    (TCP).  TCP is an important transport layer protocol in the Internet
>    stack, and has continuously evolved over decades of use and growth of
>    the Internet.  Over this time, a number of changes have been made to
>    TCP as it was specified in RFC 793, though these have only been
>    documented in a piecemeal fashion.  This document collects and brings
>    those changes together with the protocol specification from RFC 793.
>    This document obsoletes RFC 793, as well as 879, 2873, 6093, 6429,
>    6528, and 6691 that updated parts of RFC 793.  It updates RFC 1122,
>    and should be considered as a replacement for the portions of that
>    document dealing with TCP requirements.  It updates RFC 5961 due to a
>    small clarification in reset handling while in the SYN-RECEIVED
>    state.
> 
>    RFC EDITOR NOTE: If approved for publication as an RFC, this should
>    be marked additionally as "STD: 7" and replace RFC 793 in that role.
