The IESG has received a request from the Dynamic Host Configuration WG
(dhc) to consider the following document:
- 'Client Identifier Option in DHCP Server Replies'
  <draft-ietf-dhc-client-id-06.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2012-10-17. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document updates RFC2131 [RFC2131].  The changes to [RFC2131]
   defined in this draft clarifies the use of 'client identifier' option
   by the DHCP servers.  The clarification addresses the issues arising
   out of the point specified by [RFC2131] that the server 'MUST NOT'
   return client identifier' option to the client.
