Names names and more names.  Would anyone like to review this document
in last call?  For one thing, it may make sense, and I don't know if
this is really an apps area thing, to see if we have other protocols
that also declare data types, and how the two might map.  That seems to
me very appy, but I am also thinking in terms of YANG...

The IESG has received a request from the RADIUS EXTensions WG (radext) to
consider the following document:
- 'Data Types in the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service Protocol
  <draft-ietf-radext-datatypes-06.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2016-08-17. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   RADIUS specifications have used data types for two decades without
   defining them as managed entities.  During this time, RADIUS
   implementations have named the data types, and have used them in
   attribute definitions.  This document updates the specifications to
   better follow established practice.  We do this by naming the data
   types defined in RFC 6158, which have been used since at least RFC
   2865.  We provide an IANA registry for the data types, and update the
   RADIUS Attribute Type registry to include a "Data Type" field for
   each attribute.  Finally, we recommend that authors of RADIUS
   specifications use these types in preference to existing practice.
   This document updates RFC 2865, 3162, 6158, and 6572.
