In draft-ietf-manet-dlep-pause-extension-03, section 3.1.1 says “Queue Parameter Sub Data Items are an ordered list composed of sub data items with a common format.    The first sub data item is assigned a Queue Index value of 1, and subsequent data items are numbered incrementally.”  


I’d rather not allow the order of data items, even though they are sub data items, to convey any meaning.  It isn’t done anywhere else in DLEP (as far as I know), and I think that’s a good thing.  It allows a wider variety of implementations.  I believe this is easily fixed by adding a queue index field to the Queue Parameter Sub Data Item and adjusting the above-quoted sentences.
