Section 8 says:

The first paragraph of Section 8, on page 12 of RFC 4993, says:

   IRIS-LWZ is intended for serving public data; it provides no in-band
   mechanisms for authentication or confidentiality.  Any application
   with these needs must provide out-of-band mechanisms (e.g., IPsec),
   or use the IRIS transfer protocols that provide such capabilities,
|  such as IRIS-XPC [9].
                ^^^

It should say:

   IRIS-LWZ is intended for serving public data; it provides no in-band
   mechanisms for authentication or confidentiality.  Any application
   with these needs must provide out-of-band mechanisms (e.g., IPsec),
   or use the IRIS transfer protocols that provide such capabilities,
|  such as IRIS over XPCS [9].
                ^^^^^^^^^

Notes:

The last phrase fatally misses the requirement.
The needed services are only provided by the TLS encapsulation of
IRIS-XPC, the compound protocol being named IRIS over XPCS in [9], and
that is being made visible via explicit iris.xpcs URIs [9].

Alexey: the term IRIS-XPCS is not defined in [9], but "IRIS over XPCS" is used. So I modified the change accordingly.
