Thank you for the work put into this document. The document is clear, easy to
read (I appreciated the given examples).

After discussion with the responsible AD, Alvaro Retana, and the IDR WG chairs,
I am clearing my DISCUSS (kept below for archival purpose) based on the promise
that the IPv6 companion document will be 'expedite processed' by the WG chairs,
document shepherd, and responsible AD + request for prompt processing by the
RFC Editor. The final goal is to have this document and its IPv6 companion
published roughly at the same time. (I still wonder why making two documents
though ;-) ).

Thanks to all for quickly updating the list of IPv6 implementations, that
opened the gate for publication.

Why having two different documents ? One for IPv4 (with the core elements of
the protocol) and one for IPv6 (with only the IPv6 specifics)... I am more than
surprized to say the least... hence my DISCUSS...

This blocking DISCUSS can easily be fixed: e.g., with a RFC Editor note to make
a cluster of this document and draft-ietf-idr-flow-spec-v6 so that they are
published together with adjacent RFC numbers. Merging the two documents would
be preferred but I understand that this is more work (albeit a missed

Please find below a couple on non-blocking COMMENTs.

I hope that this helps to improve the document,
