I have only a small nit:
"The threat model that the CDN-Loop header field addresses is a customer who is
attempting to attack a service provider by configuring a forwarding loop by
accident or malice. "

The "attempting to attack ... by accident" reads oddly to me. It feel to me
that "attempting" implies intent, and I don't see how you can accidentally
intend to attack. Perhaps "The threat model that the CDN-Loop header field
addresses is a customer who is attacking a service provider by configuring a
forwarding loop by accident or malice. " (or "causing an attack" or "negative
impact").

Anyway, this is just a minor point, perhaps try address it if you are editing
anyway...
