This document discusses considerations for assigning a new recommended DiffServ Code Point (DSCP). It considers the common remarking behaviours that the Diffserv field might be subjected to along an Internet path. It also notes some implications of using a specific DSCP. This individual draft aims to seek comments and contributions from the TSVWG working group.
