                 Diameter Specification Recommendations
                      draft-bertz-dime-diamimpr-00

Abstract

   This document reports on formatting errors, uses cases, and
   inconsistencies found in various standards specifications related to
   the Diameter interface requirements.  Recommendations are made to
   reduce errors, support common use cases and build specifications in
   such a way that programmatic verification of Diameter specifications
   can be done with minimal to no errors.
