Unfortunately, we did not recognize the mail received on 1 March as a
request to consider <draft-simpson-tcpct-00.txt> for publication as
an Independent Submission, as we did not see a particular request for
for the RFC Editor.  Once clarified, the document was processed as
described in RFC 4846.  

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
