The document (version -06, expired 2019-01-03) is unchanged since last
year's IETF last call that started in November 2018. That version drew a
lot of substantive comments that have not been addressed (see
thread starting at
Isn't a WGLC without any discussion of these issues (not even to dismiss
them) somewhat premature? Would it not be more appropriate to comb through
the last call threads, extract the substantive comments, and make a
considered decision what to do about each, possibly after submitting a new
version without changes to un-expire the document?

As a reminder, one of the substantive objections raised was that the
document recommends blanket discarding of unknown next header values,
violating RFC 7045. Expect this to come up again as both a technical and
process issue if it's not fixed (for the latter see Brian Carpenter's
comments in
