All: The IESG has sent draft-ietf-cuss-sip-uui to the WG to ratify the
"Standards Action" guideline for defining UUI packages and registering
new IANA elements for the parameter tables for purpose, encoding and

The draft authors note that the original concern when the work
was coming out of Dispatch was that the UUI not become a "wildcard"
header to be used for a wide variety of purposes.  Hence the direction
toward requiring a standards track RFC.  However, a lesser standard
such as "Specification Required" might suffice and offer more
flexibility for additional use cases, while not opening up the process
totally as would be the case for "First Come First Serve."

The IESG will like to revisit this decision to confirm that the WG
decisions remains "Standards Action".

To that end, Enrico and I will like to open up a 2-week period to ratify
this decision to remain at "Standards Action" or to move to something
other designation.

The 2-week period ends on close of business (US Central Time) April 17,
2014.  Please express an opinion; if you are for keeping status quo,
please send a one-liner to the cuss WG mailing list.  If you are of the
opinion that we should relax the burden, please state so and a short
reason on why we should do so.

Thank you all.
