Thanks for all of your detailed comments:
- The backwards compatibility comment refers to the fact that
previous drafts (and the RFC) calls for a "minus 2" length adjustment and

- We'll change the initial value for the sequence number counter to
be "0" instead of "1" so that the first transmitted packet will contain the
- We'll change the max counter value to 2^32 (from 2^32-1) to
reflect the previous change.
