        Title           : IP Tunnels in the Internet Architecture
        Authors         : Joe Touch
                          Mark Townsley

   This document discusses the role of IP tunnels in the Internet
   architecture. An IP tunnel transits IP datagrams as payloads in non-
   link layer protocols. This document explains the relationship of IP
   tunnels to existing protocol layers and the challenges in supporting
   IP tunneling, based on the equivalence of tunnels to links. The
   implications of this document are used to derive recommendations that
   update MTU and fragment issues in RFC 4459.
