IESG Telechat date: Not scheduled for a telechat

Summary: A very simple well written document ready for publication except for
one nit and one question.

Major issues: None.

Minor issues:

      A 64-bit unsigned integer, representing the longest transmission
      delay, in microseconds, that a packet encounters as it is
      transmitted over the link.

SB> That is a range 0..58000 years. I wonder if it would have been
SB> useful to have used ns at a cost of limiting the range to
SB> only 0..58 years?


Nits/editorial comments:

                      DLEP Latency Range Extension


   This document defines an extension to the DLEP protocol to provide
   the range of latency that may be experienced on a link.

SB> I am not sure what the policy WRT to RFC titles is, but DLEP is
SB> not well known and should be expanded in the abstract.
