Hi Jouni,



It seems that I've some trouble with my mail box.... Please see below my

Hi Jouni & Julien,



This charter looks good. However, please see inline few suggestions for
modifications.



Thanks,

Pierrick

This sentence gives the impression that extensions to MIP/PMIP will be
necessary, i.e. here, the charter seems put extensions as a requirement (I
don't think it is the goal :-)). It appears to be inconsistent with the two
steps approach suggested by the work items: best current practices (without
protocol modification), then, if necessary, specify extensions. So, I'd
suggest to reword as follows:



The protocol solutions should be based on existing IP mobility

  Protocols and related mechanisms, either host- or network-based, such as
Mobile IPv6

   [RFC6275, 5555], Proxy Mobile IPv6 [RFC5213, 5844] and

  NEMO [RFC3963].



Alternatively, the distributed mobility management

>   solution can be transparent to any underlying IP mobility protocol.

>   Although the maintenance of stable home address(es) and/or prefix(es)

>   and upper level sessions is a desirable goal when mobile

> hosts/routers

>   change their point of attachment to the Internet, it is not a strict

>   requirement. Mobile hosts/routers should not assume that IP

>   addressing including home address(es) and/or home network prefix(es)

>   remain the same throughout the entire upper level session lifetime.

I suggest to add the following statement:



Mobile hosts/routers should not assume always-on mobility support.

IMHO, the gap analysis should not be part of the best current practices.
The BCP may stress some limitations but an exhaustive gap analysis should
be the motivation for protocols extensions. So, I suggest to rearrange work
items as follows:



   o Best practices: Document best practices for the

     deployment of existing mobility protocols in a distributed mobility

     management environment.





 o  Gap Analysis and extensions: identify the limitations of each such

    approach with respect to fulfillment of the solution requirements. If
limitations are,

    specify extensions to existing protocols that removes these

    limitations within a distributed mobility management environment.

As explained above, I think the gap analysis should not be part of the BCP.
So, this goal should be:



   Aug 2012 - Submit I-D 'Best practices' as a working

              group document. To be Informational RFC.

Extensions should be motivated by a complete gap analysis. So, this goal
should be:



Nov 2012 - Gap analysis and evaluation for the need of additional working
group document(s)

            for extensions to fill the identified gaps.
