My apologies for the tardy response, but given the following text in the proposed charter...

> Home networks need to provide the tools to handle these situations in
> a manner accessible to all users of home networks. Manual
> configuration is rarely, if at all, possible. The purpose of this
> working group is to focus on this evolution, in particular as it
> addresses the introduction of IPv6, by developing an architecture

> o prefix configuration for routers
> o managing routing
> o name resolution
> o service discovery
> o network security

...I was wondering where something like buffer-bloat, and in particular supporting/managing AQM, would fit in given the above.  Jim Getty's talk at the last IETF meeting was well received and appeared to open some eyes to an issue that seemed to have been easily overseen.  My impression is that work in Home Networks could help address some of the items that Jim brought up in his presentation.
