Hi Luigi,

I just realized that I never replied to this mail. The change below is okay, however, it did not make it into the current version of the draft and therefore I cannot clear my discuss. Please also note that the text on decapsulation is basically in the same section twice. I recommend to remove it once and adapt the other one accordingly.

Further, inline with RFC6040, you would also need to align the re-encapsulation part. Currently the text says:
"Re-encapsulation MUST copy the 2-bit 'ECN' field from the stripped outer header to the new outer header.“
Usually re-encapsulation is performed by doing de-encapsulation and then encapsulation again. The difference here would be, that if e.g. the inner header is not-ETC but the tunnel changes the bits to ETC0 or ETC1 this error is not further propagated, indicating ECN support where there is not ECN support.

Thanks,
Mirja

If they are not implemented correctly, it might even be more important to spell them out in this document, so implementors have chance to update their (future) implementation to do the correct thing. Having deployed implementations that are non standard-conform always happens and in this case it is probably not specifically problematic as it doesn’t impact interoperability. However, it is important though that the spec is correct.
