Hi Carsten,

What we're trying to explore is the deployment possibility of 6lowpan in
industrial control/monitoring environment. There are specific
requirements in the industrial control field, like, determinism,
real-time, reliability, etc. This is the first document we submit and
hope to bring out people's interest and get a general idea of people's
perspective. We're planning to submit more follow-on drafts for some
detailed discussion. Hope this explains.

Given that I'm not aware of an existing IETF activity where this
document would fit, a natural first step would be to first gather
interest in setting up a new activity and then start work on the
pertinent requirements document.

A random observation about the I-D: 
I'm not sure about the purpose of the references.
