The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider 
the following document:

- 'ESMTP and LMTP Transmission Types Registration '
  RFC 3848 as a Draft 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 2009-12-23. Exceptionally, 
comments may be sent to instead. In either case, please 
retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

The file can be obtained via

The document currently has 4 normative references:

1) RFC 3207: "SMTP Service Extension for Secure SMTP over Transport
Layer Security". This is a downref.

2) RFC 2821: "Simple Mail Transfer Protocol".
Should a new version of this document be required, this will be changed to
RFC 5321, which is a Draft Standard, so it is not going to be a downref.

3) RFC 2554: "SMTP Service Extension for Authentication". This document
was obsoleted by RFC 4954, but the latter is still a downref.

4) RFC 2033: "Local Mail Transfer Protocol". This document is Informational,
So it is a downref.

Implementation Report can be accessed at
Initial set of implementations is currently in the datatracker (see below).
