Sorry for the delay... swamped like everyone else - commenting below on the 2 more complex drafts.

In my view, the 2 drafts MULTI_TSPEC and MULTI_PREEMPTION are an update to how Intserv is invoked by RSVP, that is to say, RFC 2210. It is relatively minor (although this is totally subjective). Intserv defined some services. RSVP was defined as  a mechanism to invoke services. What this draft does is it says that you can invoke a service by saying what service parameters you would really like, and which lesser set of parameters you would accept. In the original RSVP design, you could only send one set of parameters and get a yes/no answer.

The draft looks pretty complete to me. But it will need careful line-by-line review by one or more RSVP experts.

> 
> * Do we need to do this? Why?

Well, it seems that in the current state of things, you can't use RSVP to reserve the "right" amount of resources when the endpoints could live with a range of possible levels. For example, if two endpoints support a high bit rate and low bit rate encoding, you can't settle on the right choice of codec in  a single RTT today. So, to the extent that you accept that this is a problem (which I do) yes, we need the draft.

This is most useful to telephony/video conferencing apps in my reading.

I'm willing to do this (but I see that Bob Briscoe has also done a review which he has not yet posted.)
