Technical Summary
   This document describes a new LISP Canonical Address Format (LCAF),
   the Vendor Specific LCAF.  This LCAF enables organizations to have
   internal encodings for LCAF addresses.

Working Group Summary

   The document was first published in 2017, and was quickly adopted 
   and past WG Last Call in 2018.  The document was parked (like other 
  documents) in order to give priority to the main LISP specifications. 

Document Quality

   No known implementations.  This document builds on the experience 
   gained by rfc8060 (this is the reason for it being Experimental).
