Dan, Bert, 

DOCSIS uses the Vlan Mask in a packet classification scheme where the
value zero means the VLAN-ID is not analyzed to match the tagged packet.

As operations, The Vlan value is set in the CM config file, if not used
in the config file, a default value of zero means don't care 

For the DOCS-QOS-MIB 
Would be possible to subtype the VlanId TC as 

docsQosPktClassVlanId OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX VlanId INTEGER (0..4094)
Or 
SYNTAX VlanId INTEGER (0 | 1..4094)
.....

Or a new TC zeroOrVlanId
With ;
SYNTAX INTEGER (0 | 1..4094)



Eduardo

Bert,

I suggest to take the discussion to the mibs list. The interest is
broader than Bridge MIB, as demonstrated by the number of MIBs that deal
with VLAN ID objects.

To the point: 
- It looks that definitions in draft-ietf-bridge-ext-v2-01.txt, RFC 2613
and RFC 2674 (VlanId) are similar. A common TC can be easily defined, by
taking the RFC 2674 VlanId TC and adding the REFERENCE as in RFC 2613. 
- I do not know what is the reason DOCSIS supports value 0. 
- The framework PIB have added a special value -1, with a separate
semantics (ignore VLAN in the filter). 
- VlanIndex in RFC2674 also has a different semantics. 

Side issue -  if a TC can be easily written and agreed (after some cat
beating) - what will we be doing with documents already on the standards
track? RFC 2613 is supposed to be advanced from PS to DS 'as is'. You
can buy a beer to the author and have a new document issued, but will
such a change prevent advancement of the document on the standard track?
If yes, is this really worth?

Dan
