(1) Ruler line misalignment In Section 2, on page 4, the two ruler lines on top of Figure 1 are misaligned; they should be indented one more column. The same issue holds for Figure 2 in Section 4, on page 11, and for Figure 3 in Section 5, on page 12. (2) missing article In the first paragraph of Section 3.1, on page 5, "... specified in Mobile IP specification ..." should better say: "... specified in the Mobile IP specification ..." . ^^^^^ (3) Inconsistent/incomplete change of terminology RFC 4721 has changed the terms used to specify various protocol elements. Yet these changes have not been performed consistently throughout the memo. I have observed the following places where updates have been omitted: - Section 3.1, page 6, 4th paragraph: "(MN-AAA)" should say: "(Mobile-AAA)" - Section 3.5, page 11, 3rd paragraph: "MN-AAA" should say: "Mobile-AAA" - Section 11, last paragraph on page 16: "MN-AAA" should say: "Mobile-AAA" - Section 11, first paragraph on page 17: "Mobile Node - Foreign Agent (MN-FA)" should say: "Mobile-Foreign" - Appendix B, first line on page 22: BAD_AUTHENTICATION should say: 'mobile node failed authentication' - Appendix E, on page 24: send_error(STALE_CHALLENGE) should say: send_error(stale_challenge) and send_error(UNKNOWN_CHALLENGE); should say: send_error(unknown_challenge); Also, Appendix D makes repeated use of "MN-FA Authentication", but that is not so closely related to the extension now named differently, and thus can perhaps be left unchanged. (4) Section 11 -- logical grouping In Section 11, the (new) final paragraph is an adjunct to the fourth indented paragraph (second paragraph on page 17) and should better have been unified with that one; the new codes are already covered by the wording there! (5) Appendix A -- typo In the 7th bullet (onpage 20), "compare to" should say: "compared to" .
It should say:
I would like to submit a few comments, drawing your attention
to some textual flaws left over in the text.
These might not be worth of an RFC Errata Note, but you should
at least make note thereof, for consideration in any future work
derived from this specification.
