Summary: One minor issue to discuss

Major issues: none

Minor issues:

Section 2:

   As can be seen, the WESP format extends the standard ESP header    by the first 4 octets for IPv4 and by 8 octets for IPv6. The    WESP header is integrity protected, along with all the fields    specified for ESP in RFC 4303.
Normally ESP wouldn't need to process encapsulation headers that appear prior to the SPI. Won't this require modification of the ESP implementation, possibly breaking its modularity? Would it be problematic for certain algorithms to include this data? It might be good to state that.

Nits/editorial comments: none
