Following our discussion on yesterday's WG meeting, here is some proposed text for the charter:-

MPTCP is now seeing widespread deployment in networks to bond together two accesses, such as fixed and mobile broadband. The scenario typically features two proxies, one in the home gateway ('CPE') and one in the network, both under the control of the operator. The WG will analyse proposed solutions for this scenario by producing:-

* assessment criteria for solutions; support of non-TCP traffic is not a criteria. The WG Chairs will produce the initial version.

* analysis of proposed solutions against these criteria, as well as what updates they would require to RFC6824bis.  As a result, the WG may agree to go forward with the favoured solution.
