Hi Lou,

I'm starting to receive quite a few enquiries from industry for DLEP support for modem systems where different traffic classes flow via different paths to destinations, so called 'hub-assist' modems.  For these types of modem (an others) the ability to describe the metrics per-flow to a destination is required.

As I've mentioned before, I think there is benefit in splitting out the concept of Traffic Class Ids (as specified in this draft) into its own draft, including both the DSCP and Ethernet TOS examples, and then referring to that draft from this one, and also from others including 'metrics per TCID'. 

I'm in London, and do think this is a useful topic of conversation for the meeting/future work.  

@chairs: Would you like Lou or I to grab 10 mins at the mic to talk about this, or try to work it out offline?

Cheers,

Rick
