First, one has to presume that this is external to the PROVREG WG
effort. (The charter would forbid it on a number of grounds.)

will outlive the WG. (It's not a matter of scope for the list.)
Congestion control was one of the issues that we (PROVREG WG) got hit
with (in the IESG comments). But with this being UDP, I don't think
that congestion is a concern. (UDP is UDP, no retransmission. Unless
something else is screwed up in design - no amplification of traffic
