Hi Anurag,

I've posted a draft addressing a similar issue and proposing a similar solution in 1999. Did you get a chance to review it?  If not, would you like a copy maybe we converge on a solution? 

kind regar ds,
Alicja

Hi,

If you are wondering how to progress this in the IETF, the answer is...

- write an I-D
- discuss it (here)
- polish it
- ask me to sponsor it for publication as an RFC.

Cheers,
Adrian
