I think we both agree that the text on ICMP handling should be moved out
of the security considerations section and put it its own section. The
question is what to put there.

You prefer defaults, and are recommending ICMP handling similar to that
in documents the WG has decided not to recommend for TCP not running AO.

I want to leave TCP-AO's handling of ICMPs the same as IPsec's - up to
the user.

Can others please weigh in?

Joe
