Dear Colin,

Thanks for your suggestion about research related aspects. In our next
version, we will add a paragraph in the Introduction section, and a new
section to elaborate the research issues.

The purpose of this document is a preliminary BATS coding scheme for
researchers and engineers so that they can further develop network
communication applications/protocols based on BATS codes. Towards a
sophisticated BATS code based network protocol/application, several
important research directions should be considered. In addition to the
security issues, another important research is to design the corresponding
congestion control and routing algorithms for BATS codes.
