Greetings, all,

Thanks to everyone for yesterday's BoF. We got lots of good input, and a better handle on what a future TCMTF WG might look like.

There are a few issues we identified that we'll have to take into consideration for a new draft of the charter:

(1) make it clear that backward compatibility with RFC 4170 is a goal.

(2) an applicability statement, which explains applications that benefit from 
    TCMTF and the situations for which it is likely useful, and applications 
    and situations for which it is not. This should address interactions between 
    TCMTF tunnels and TCP cross traffic sharing a bottleneck link.

(3) interactions with how this interacts with diverse lower layers, especially
    with respect to different delay tolerances, will have to be considered.

And we'd really more input from vendors already building boxes in this space, and operators deploying them, as input to scoping and applicability.

Best regards,

Mirja and Brian (second TCMTF BoF chairs)
