Last call for draft-dasilva-l2tp-relaysvc-04.txt

draft-dasilva-l2tp-relaysvc-04.txt incorporates items discussed during the last 
call for draft-dasilva-l2tp-relaysvc-03.txt

I will advise the Area Directors on October 15, 2002, to take 
draft-dasilva-l2tp-relaysvc-04.txt to Proposed Standard unless there is 
substantive comment raised on this list.

Re: Comments on draft-ietf-l2tpext-tunnel-switching-03.txt

Thanks for the comments Mark. My response inline..
I snipped out plenty of text that you didn't comment on.

Yes, we'd like it to be generic because we think there is applicability
beyond PPP; Agree that it needs more nomenclature change (borrow most
of them from L2TPv3). It would allow tunnel switching to work with
L2TPv2 as well.

sure, how about:
"Tunnel switching enables redirection of layer2 sessions based on
administrative policies as described below". 'below' would cover
the same text.

AD review of draft-ietf-l2tpext-v92-moh-01.txt

Here are my review comments, based on the WG request to advance the
document as a PS. 

The IANA considerations really needs to be redone before last call,
since IANA will review the document during the LC to determine what
actions it has.

Once we have a new ID in place, I'll start the LC.


title has acronyms  (rfc editor won't like this)

>                 V.92 Modem-On-Hold signalling on L2TP

Would a better title be:

      Signalling of Modem-On-Hold status in Layer Two Tunnelling
      Protocol (L2TP).

abstract not conformant with RFC editor guidelines.

see http://www.rfc-editor.org/policy.html

>    L2TP defines a general purpose mechanism for tunneling PPP over
>    various media.  By design, the operation of L2TP is insulated from
>    the details of the media from which the PPP session originated,
>    including when a V.92 client modem requests to go on-hold.  It may be
>    desirable for this information to be provided to the LNS.
