The IESG has received a request from the Softwires WG (softwire) to
consider the following document:
- 'Gateway Initiated Dual-Stack Lite Deployment'
  <draft-ietf-softwire-gateway-init-ds-lite-06.txt> as a Proposed

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2012-01-04. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   Gateway-Initiated Dual-Stack lite (GI-DS-lite) is a variant of Dual-
   Stack lite (DS-lite) applicable to certain tunnel-based access
   architectures.  GI-DS-lite extends existing access tunnels beyond the
   access gateway to an IPv4-IPv4 NAT using softwires with an embedded
   context identifier that uniquely identifies the end-system the
   tunneled packets belong to.  The access gateway determines which
   portion of the traffic requires NAT using local policies and sends/
   receives this portion to/from this softwire.
