I know there has already been a bunch of discussion about whether this document
should formally update RFC 7432. I wanted to ask specifically about Section
3.1. I may be completely misunderstanding this since I did not give RFC 7432 a
thorough read, but it appears as though Section 3.1 specifically articulates
details applicable to RFC 7432 (independent of what this draft specifies in 3.2
and later sections) that were not included in that RFC. That seems like it
warrants the "Updates" relationship, because then people reading RFC 7432 in
the future will know to look at this document for updates, and can at least
find the FSM and its description there. There is not consensus about what
"Updates" means (as evidenced by recent discussion instigated by the IESG [1])
and I don't think this is worth dying on a hill over, just wanted to raise that
specifically in case people hadn't considered it.

The introduction of this document is unusually long (more than a third of the
substantive content of the document). You might consider having 1.1 start a new
section rather than having 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 be subsections of the introduction.
