Thank you for your close reading of the draft. Most of the errors you note were artifacts of various revisions and have been repaired.

As you know, there are basically 2 types of RFCs: protocol specifications & applicability statements. This document is intended (at least from my POV, my co-authors can chime in here) to remain as strictly as possible within the realm of the former type since there are several other interested entities that may define explicit (and possibly conflicting) requirements upon the fields in question. That said, have you any suggestions for text?
Hope this helps,
