Technical Summary:

      This document proposes a framework for the management of the LISP EID
      Block.  The framework described relies on hierarchical distribution of
      the address space, granting temporary usage of sub-prefixes of such space
      to requesting organisations.  This document is a companion of the LISP
      EID Block draft (draft-ietf-lisp-eid-block).

Working Group Summary:

      No concerns were expressed by the WG on the necessity of disposing of a
      management guidelines document.  However, this final document is the
      result of the numerous discussions that occurred within the WG.  The WG
      reached a consensus on this document.

Document Quality:

      The document is well written and of a high standard.  No special review
      was performed nor is needed.  The massive implication of the group on the
      companion document LISP EID Block (draft-ietf-lisp-eid-block-10)
      indicates the absolute need of publishing this management document (i.e.,
      draft-ietf-lisp-eid-block-mgmnt-04) jointly with the LISP EID Block
      document.  People having contributed significantly to the work are well
      acknowledged in the document.
