COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't object the publication of this document.

However, I want to call attention to the latest IPR declaration [1] which seems
to have resulted in a very, very, very late claim against this document *and*
rfc6006.  Not only was the declaration done recently, but I don't think the WG
was explicitly made aware of it.  I did look at the archive and this is what I
found:

- WG Chair asked the authors to update the system to reflect that the IPR
claimed against rfc6006 also applies to this document [2]

- a new IPR statement [1] was filed, which updated the previous one [3]

The problem is that the most recent statement [1] points to a patent ("US
12/404100") which is different from the one in the original statement [3] ("US
12/708048").  I take this update to mean that there is more IP than originally
claimed -- resulting in a very, very, very late statement.  Note that it came
in after the WGLC concluded and just a couple of days before the document was
submitted to the IESG for Publication.

I'll let the WG chairs and the responsible AD take appropriate actions.
