Thanks for your second round of comments Peter. See comments inline.

I have fixed this and received multiple comemnts on this from various people.

Should be fixed now.

Fixed now.

An implementation must be prepared to find the RTR RLOC address entry with an 
AFI=0. So either the length includes all bytes up to and including the “Private 
ETR RLOC Address” field which basically encodes no “RTR RLOC Address” more 
efficiently or it does include an AFI=0 for the “RTR RLOC Address” entry. Since 
an AFI can be a value of 0 in any LISP message, we have to document the two 
ways to encode “no RLOC addresses”.

Made changes for above.

I don’t find any reference in document -17 to "8-byte Application Data fields”.

Made these changes too. Thanks.
