In his review of draft-ietf-ancp-mc-extensions-12, our AD pointed out 
that the optional presence of the Request-Source-IP or 
Request-Source-MAC TLV in the ANCP Multicast Admission Control message 
posed privacy issues. Looking through the ANCP requirements in RFC 5851 
and TR-101, I could find no requirement that these be reported.

I proposed that these TLVs be dropped from the message and from the 
document. I will assume that I have consent for this change if I do not 
hear arguments against it by the end of Wednesday, December 18.
