Mirja,

I don't even remember writing this Erratum, it's so old (or maybe it's 
me that's so old - don't comment on that tho).

The main reason for reporting omissions in the "Updates" header is to 
ensure that people who are responsible for implementations of updated 
RFCs know that they are meant to watch RFC3168 (and its updates). It 
would be useful if the tools view showed accepted errata to the Updates 
header below the "Updated by" field (in the grey area at the top of the 
HTML of a draft).

Any chance that this is possible?


FYI, according to the 3168 errata list, there are 3 missing refs in the 
updates header of 3168 now. But they each have a different status:

Errata ID: 2660 <https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid2660>*Status: 
Verified* Add "Updates: 2003"
Errata ID: 4997 <https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid4997> *Status: 
Reported *Add "Updates: 2460"
Errata ID: 4754 <https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid4754>*Status: Held 
for Document Update *Add "Updates: 2473"

RFC3168 also updated the decapsulation behaviour of the ECN field in an IPv6 tunnel header, which had not been specified in RFC2473.
