Hi Smith,
A few comments:
1. Although the standard compliance terms are used, (MUST, SHOULD, etc.) Section 2 does not include the  standard reference defining these terms.
2. Section 4 line 150 (in the non-redline pdf): “… Attributes operation [RFC8011] but can be authenticated …” suggests that the operation is authenticated, which I don’t think is a typical way of indicating that the operation may prompt a sequence to authenticate the user. Prehaps rewording to “  … Attributes operation [RFC8011] except that the response can be filtered based on the most authenticated user and to effect this, the operation can prompt a sequence to authenticate the user.” Or something like that.

On a more general topic, for whatever reason, the PWG has typically provided drafts in MS Word and PDF formats. The ‘odt’ format is not compatible with , at least, my version of MS Word to the extent that opening it in MS Word produces a incorrectly displayed document subject to extensive editorial comments. The Process states “ Internal working versions of PWG documents should be available in an agreed upon, widely available word processing format, to provide for collaboration between document editors and contributors. For example, Microsoft WORD and HTML are common 
revisable formats in use, today. “ For those not familiar with your use of  Open Office,  perhaps it would be better to include a note in your draft announcements that the .odt extension files should be viewed with Apache Open Office, not MS Word.

Thanks, Bill Wagner
