	Title		: MLEF Considered Harmful

	Pages		: 19

The Defense Information Systems Agency of the United States
Department of Defense, with is contractors, has proposed a service
architecture for military (NATO and related agencies) telephone
systems. This is called the Assured Service, and is defined in two
documents: 'Architecture for Assured Service Capabilities in Voice
over IP' and 'Requirements for Assured Service Capabilities in Voice
over IP'. Responding to these are four documents: 'Reason Header
Field for the Session Initiation Protocol', 'Extending the Session
Initiation Protocol Reason Header to account for  Preemption Events',
'Communications Resource Priority for the Session Initiation
Protocol', and the 'Multi-Level Expedited Forwarding Per Hop
Behavior' (MLEF PHB). MLEF, as currently defined, has serious
problems, which this draft seeks to discuss.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
