I'm not sure of the application here...

We will add text to clarify that the received Hello must be "valid" as you

This will be changed to a SHOULD.

In the draft it states that the Message_Id value is incremental. We will
change "incremental" to "monotonically increasing".

Thanks. We'll update the text.

It seems to me that this is an implementation issue that I don't think needs
to be specified in the protocol spec.

no. The protocol Id needs to be assigned by IANA.

These are very closely related to the transmission medium for the control
channel, so I'm not sure it is appropriate.

After the receive side meets the "number of data links", it no longer has to
look for Test messages for that Verification procedure.

We will add C-Type=4 for OIF.
