This draft is ready to be published as Experimental RFC, but I have some comments.
-Abstract says "thus saving up to one full round trip time (RTT)": by just reading the abstract one would think 1.5 RTT since initial 3WHS is avoided.
Reading the rest of the draft clarifies this though. Suggestion :
TFO allows data to be carried in the SYN and SYN-ACK packets
and consumed by the receiving end during 'an' initial connection
handshake, 'and' saves up to one full round trip time (RTT) compared
to the standard TCP, ......
-[page 4] "MSL", to spell out at first use "maximum segment lifetime" (or please consider mentioning reference to key TCP RFCs in Terminology section).
-General: Also few other acronyms used without spelling out at first use, please consider those as well.
-[Page 7], 'Fast Open Cookie Option', it would be more familiar to IETF community to call "Kind" field "Type", unless there was a reason for this differentiation.
-[Page 10] please remove extra space (page break) if not needed.
-[Page 12], typo "connection-sharding"--->"connection-sharing"
-[page 14] "as a application"--->"as an application"
-[Page 17], typo "Neverthless"--->"Nevertheless"
-[Page 18], typo "meet the the"---->"meet the"
-[Page 21], typo "in Section Section 4.1.1"---->"in Section 4.1.1"
-[Page 21] please remove extra space (page break) if not needed.
