I've checked with the ipsecme WG and the responsible Security AD.

The upshot is that there's still a lot of 2400-series RFC IPsec out there, and hence the appropriate IPsec requirements for iSCSI are:

	- MUST implement IPsec, 2400-series RFCs (IPsec v2, IKEv1).
	- SHOULD implement IPsec, 4300-series RFCs (IPsec v3, IKEv2).

The MUST is for interoperability and to acknowledge what's out there; the SHOULD is to encourage implementers to move forward. 

Now I need to go write the actual text to go into the draft, and the main iSCSI draft will have to update RFC 3723 as part of this.

Thanks,
--David
