CC: iana@iana.org, The IESG <iesg@ietf.org>;, ietf-announce@ietf.org

The IESG has no problem with the publication of 'Survey of proposed use
cases for the IPv6 flow label' <draft-hu-flow-label-cases-03.txt> as an
Informational RFC.

The IESG would also like the RFC-Editor to review the comments in
the datatracker
(http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-hu-flow-label-cases/) related to
this document and determine whether or not they merit incorporation into
the document. Comments may exist in both the ballot and the comment log.

Thank you,

The IESG Secretary

Technical Summary

   This topic has been discussed in the 6MAN working group, but this
   document is an independent submission, not a WG product.

Document Quality

   document is useful to publish.
