Shepherd writeup

(1) RFC is Best Current Practice, and this is the proper type of RFC


Technical Summary:

   EDNS0 enables a DNS server to send large responses using UDP and is
   widely deployed.  Large DNS/UDP responses are fragmented, and IP
   fragmentation has exposed weaknesses in application protocols.  It is
   possible to avoid IP fragmentation in DNS by limiting response size
   where possible, and signaling the need to upgrade from UDP to TCP
   transport where necessary.  This document proposes to avoid IP
   fragmentation in DNS.

Working Group Summary:

The working group had a few issues to work through, which included adding an
appendix for implementations. Several comments came in after WGLC, but they
were very relevant, so the working group addressed them.
There are currently no issues and solid consensus with the final document.
