Shepherd writeup
rfc7852-38

> Document Shepherd Writeup per RFC 4858 template, (dated 24 February 2012), for the following work group draft:
> 
> https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-ecrit-additional-data/
> 
> 
> (1) What type of RFC is being requested (BCP, Proposed Standard,
> Internet Standard, Informational, Experimental, or Historic)?  Why
> is this the proper type of RFC?  Is this type of RFC indicated in the
> title page header?
> 
> RFC type being requested for this draft is “Proposed Standard”, since the draft provides guidelines. 
> 
> 
> (2) The IESG approval announcement includes a Document Announcement
> Write-Up. Please provide such a Document Announcement Write-Up. Recent
> examples can be found in the "Action" announcements for approved
> documents. The approval announcement contains the following sections:
> 
> 
> Technical Summary
> 
>  Relevant content can frequently be found in the abstract
>  and/or introduction of the document. If not, this may be
>  an indication that there are deficiencies in the abstract
>  or introduction.
> 
> [Abstract]
> When an emergency call is sent to a Public Safety Answering Point
> (PSAP), the device that sends it, as well as any application service
> provider in the path of the call, or access network provider through
> which the call originated may have information about the call, the
> caller or the location which the PSAP may be able to use. 
> 
> This document describes data structures and a mechanism to convey such
> data to the PSAP.  The mechanism uses a Uniform Resource Identifier
> (URI), which may point to either an external resource or an object in
> the body of the SIP message.  The mechanism thus allows the data to
> be passed by reference (when the URI points to an external resource)
> or by value (when it points into the body of the message).  This
> follows the tradition of prior emergency services standardization
> work where data can be conveyed by value within the call signaling
> (i.e., in body of the SIP message) and also by reference.
> 
> 
> Working Group Summary
> 
>  Was there anything in WG process that is worth noting? For
>  example, was there controversy about particular points or
>  were there decisions where the consensus was particularly
>  rough?
> 
> There was a good amount of work group participation in contributing, discussing, and revising the details that make up the draft.  There were no significant controversies noted on the list, and all dialogues were efficiently attended to with during the development stage. A successful development progression is documented in the ECRIT working group minutes and in email list archives.

>  Are there existing implementations of the protocol? Have a
>  significant number of vendors indicated their plan to
>  implement the specification? Are there any reviewers that
>  merit special mention as having done a thorough review,
>  e.g., one that resulted in important changes or a
>  conclusion that the document had no substantive issues? If
>  there was a MIB Doctor, Media Type or other expert review,
>  what was its course (briefly)? In the case of a Media Type
>  review, on what date was the request posted?
> 
> No existing implementations are known to exist per this document.  There have been several vendors that have been involved in the development and review of the document.

> (6) Describe any specific concerns or issues that the Document Shepherd
