Section 6 says:

See note.

It should say:

	IPsec usage is recommended to secure PIM messages, but PIM relies upon an 
MRIB populated outside of PIM and it should be noted that for PIM security to be 
effective, securing the sources of change to the MRIB in a similar fashion to 
IPsec is required to be consistent and secure.


An additional note should be made with regard to PIM security, possibly as
section 6.3.3?
