The IESG has received a request from the Congestion and Pre-Congestion
Notification WG (pcn) to consider the following document:
- 'PCN Boundary Node Behaviour for the Controlled Load (CL) Mode of
  <draft-ietf-pcn-cl-edge-behaviour-08.txt> as an Informational RFC

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 2011-06-10. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


Pre-congestion notification (PCN) is a means for protecting the
quality of service for inelastic traffic admitted to a Diffserv
domain.  The overall PCN architecture is described in RFC 5559.  This
memo is one of a series describing possible boundary node behaviours
for a PCN-domain.  The behaviour described here is that for a form of
measurement-based load control using three PCN marking states, not-
marked, threshold-marked, and excess-traffic-marked.  This behaviour
is known informally as the Controlled Load (CL) PCN-boundary-node
