Here are my non-chair thoughts.
I do think there is value in defining a home network naming / DNS architecture. 
I (enthusiastically) support adoption of the concept.
The non-boilerplate part of the table of contents is about "Name Resolution", 
with headers for "Configuring Resolvers", "Configuring Service Discovery", 
"Resolution of local names", "DNSSEC Validation", "Support for Multiple 
Provisioning Domains", "Using the Local Namespace While Away From Home". I 
support these as a good initial set of headers for a table of contents.
I don't like requiring DNS proxy in all homenet routers and would like to 
explore other options. But the DNS resolver does have to be somewhere in the 
I'd like to actually explore what we could for DNSSEC in the context of some 
holistic home network "key" architecture, and maybe we could discuss some more 
even while agreeing it's out of scope for this doc. 
I agree with scoping to internal resolution and not dealing with external 
resolution. But I recognize others might want to discuss more.
I fully agree with this being a separate "provisioning domain", but I'm not 
fully convinced the proposed solution is the right one. 

Conclusion: As long as we can keep discussion alive and healthy, and not go to 
WGLC prematurely, I'm in favor of adoption.
The main reason I hesitated to lend support is from bad experience in other 
groups where authors have tried to object to comments on the basis of "you 
supported adoption, this text was in the draft when it was adopted, and you 
didn't object to this text prior to adoption". But so long as the chairs don't 
tolerate this sort of attitude, I think we'll be fine. BTW, I've never seen 
that attitude from Ted or Daniel. And I have confidence in the chairs' ability 
to be intolerant.
