Throughout the document, when it says:

terminate and abort are used interchangeable, but this isn't explained until after such use.

In Section 6.2, we have: In the rest of this specification, when the phrases "terminate the connection" and "abort the handshake" are used without a specific alert it means that the implementation SHOULD send the alert indicated by the
descriptions below.  

It should say:

Perhaps explain terminology earlier. At the very least, in Section 6.2, open the above sentence with "Throughout this specification"


This got incorporated into the bis document, but not exactly as suggested.
