Gorry and I put together a draft, we think this could provide useful input to new DSCP definitions.

We aim to update this over the following months as we start a new set of DSCP transparency measurements across edge networks.

   This document discusses the considerations for assigning new DiffServ
   Code Points (DCSPs).  It considers the common remarking behaviours
   that the Diffserv field might be subjected to along an Internet path.
   It also notes some implications of using a specific DSCP.
The document can be found at https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-custura-tsvwg-dscp-considerations/

We’d love any feedback and contributions on this.

Ana, Gorry  & Raffaello
