Working Group Resolution (LC-2086):
Thank you. The following changes are in the current editor's draft:

- In section 3.4, behind "TLS", we add references to [SSLv3],
  [TLSv11], [TLSv12]

- Same in 5.1.

- The reference to TLSv11 in section 5.2 remains unchanged.

- We add a seaparate reference to [TLSv12] to the references
  section.
