Hi,Alissa Cooper

Thanks for your review and comments. 

The new version(version 10)  has updated to fix your comments.

The format of Smart-MAC APP sub-TLV and the text  has been changed to the 

The length of F,M,RSV,VLAN/FGL data Label is 4 bytes. and the length of 
VLAN/FGL Data Label field is 24 bits.

 |Type=Smart-MAC | (1 byte)
 | Length | (1 byte)
 |F|M|RSV| VLAN/FGL Data Label | (4 bytes)
 | MAC (1) (6 bytes) |
 | ................. |
 | MAC (N) (6 bytes) |

Smart-MAC APPsub-TLV

 o VLAN/FGL Data Label: 24bits. If F is 1, this field is a 24-bit
 FGL Data Label for all subsequent MAC addresses in this APPsub-
 TLV. Otherwise, if F is 0, the lower 12 bits is the VLAN of all
 subsequent MAC addresses in this APPsub-TLV, and the upper 12 bits
 is not used(sent as zero and ignored on receipt). If there is no
 VLAN/FGL data label specified, the VLAN/FGL Data Label is zero.

This should hopefully be easy to fix and was pointed out by the Gen-ART

All of section 4.3 is confusing as to what the length of the TLV really is.
Row 3 in the diagram says 2 bytes or 4 bytes, but the number of bits called out
in bullets 4 and 5 below it don't seem to add up to those things. Maybe it would
be better to draw a diagram with F=0 and a separate diagram with F=1.

Please make it clear both in the diagram and in the text what the expected
lengths of the fields are -- I find it particularly confusing that the number
of bits pictured doesn't align with the number of bits specified in the text
per field.


Please also look at the Gen-ART reviewer's other comments.
