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
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2009-12-23. Exceptionally, 
comments may be sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please 
retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

The file can be obtained via
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3848.txt

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
http://www.ietf.org/iesg/implementation.html
Initial set of implementations is currently in the datatracker (see below).
