Additional issues with draft-ietf-fax-service-v2-04.txt
I just reviewed the updated (-04) version of this document and it addresses the
issues I previously raised. Unfortunately, the changes themselves have raised a

a short abstract. I therefore suggest changing it to read:
This specification provides for "simple mode" carriage of facsimile
data using Internet mail. Extensions to this document will follow.
The current specification employs standard protocols and file formats
such as TCP/IP, Internet mail protocols [1, 2, 3], MIME [4, 10, 11],
and TIFF for Facsimile [5, 12, 14]. It can send images not only to
other Internet-aware facsimile devices but also to Internet-native
systems, such as PCs with common email readers which can handle MIME

communication among existing facsimile devices, Internet mail agents,
and the gateways which connect them.

The paragraphs on intellectual property claims and keyword terminology

Renaming section 1, "Scope" to "Introduction" would also be a good idea.
(2) The formatting of appendix parts 4 and 7 are busted and need to be fixed.
Also "nomartive" should be "normative".
