A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the TP/IX Working Group of the 

       Title     : Common Architecture Technology for Next-generation 
                   Internet Protocol

This memo describes a common architecture for the network layer protocol.  

The first version of this memo, describing a possible Internet Version 7 
protocol was written by the present author in the summer and fall of 1989, 
and circulated informally, including to the IESG, in December 1989. 
Informal notes on addressing, called "Toasternet Part I and II", were 
circulated on the IETF mail list during November 1991 and March 1992. 
Subsequent work was published in June 1993 in RFCs 1475 and 1476.          

It has since evolved, moving (for example) from varying length addressing 
to a fixed length format and the back to an ISO varying address format. 
Much of the thinking was paralleled by work done by Ross Callon under the 
name TUBA, and converged into the present document. (TUBA is, at this time,
a separate development effort within the IETF; the present author is 
entirely responsible for the content of this document if blame is to be 
assigned; credit must go to many others.) The first version of TUBA was 
published in RFC 1347.
