   Unmanaged large buffers in today's networks have given rise to a slew
   of performance issues.  These performance issues can be addressed by
   some form of Active Queue Management (AQM) mechanism, optionally in
   combination with a packet scheduling scheme such as fair queuing.
   The IETF Active Queue Management and Packet Scheduling working group
   was formed to standardize AQM schemes that are robust, easily
   implementable, and successfully deployable in today's networks.  This
   document describes various criteria for performing precautionary
   characterizations of AQM proposals.  This document also helps in
   ascertaining whether any given AQM proposal should be taken up for
   standardization by the AQM WG.
