TP/IX is a new version of the IP, TCP, and UDP protocols, to
advance the Internet technology to the scale and performance of
the next generation of internetwork technology. TP/IX has been
assigned the IP version number 7.

The working group is chartered to review the TP/IX and RAP
protocols, evaluate issues arising during product development
and deployment planning, and to document problems and
explanations for any parts of the coexistance with IPv4 not
covered directly in the TP/IX-IPv4 interoperation design.

The group will also be the initial forum for development of the RAP
protocol while it is experimental; this work will need to be moved
to the Routing Area when it is to be advanced.
