Abstract

This document proposes a differentiated services per-domain behavior whose traffic may be 'starved' (although starvation is not strictly required) in a properly functioning network. This is in contrast to the Internet's 'best-effort' or 'normal Internet traffic' model. The name, 'bulk handling' is loosely based on the United States' Postal Service term for very low priority mail, sent at a reduced rate. This document gives some example uses, but does not propose constraining the PDB's use to any particular type of traffic.
