Technical Summary 

   Current location configuration protocols are capable of provisioning
   an Internet host with a location URI that refers to the host's
   location.  These protocols lack a mechanism for the target host to
   inspect or set the privacy rules that are applied to the URIs they
   distribute.  This document extends the current location configuration
   protocols to provide hosts with a reference to the rules that are
   applied to a URI, so that the host can view or set these rules.

Working Group Summary 
    This document was uncontroversial. It fills a gap in the location 
    configuration architecture.

Document Quality 

   At this time there are no known implementations, nor are there any 
   reviewers or experts that merit a special mention.


  Robert Sparks is the responsible Area Director.
