COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

[ section 3.3.1 ]

https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2474.html#section-3 says this about the term
"DS field":

   Six bits of the DS field are used as a codepoint (DSCP) to select the
   PHB a packet experiences at each node.  A two-bit currently unused
   (CU) field is reserved and its definition and interpretation are
   outside the scope of this document.  The value of the CU bits are
   ignored by differentiated services-compliant nodes when determining
   the per-hop behavior to apply to a received packet.

   The DS field structure is presented below:

        0   1   2   3   4   5   6   7
      +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
      |         DSCP          |  CU   |
      +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+

        DSCP: differentiated services codepoint
        CU:   currently unused

So, if this section 3.3.1 one byte DS field is meant to be the same (i.e.
includes the 2 CU bits that are now ECN bits), then I'm good with this.

Thanks.
