Technical Summary
  This document requests IANA allocate a UDP port and link-local 
  multicast addresses (IPv4 & IPv6) for communication between MANET 
Working Group Summary
  Strong WG agreement is reported (see PROTO writeup).  Several other
  WG documents contain normative references to this draft.
Protocol Quality
  Ross Callon has reviewed this for the IESG (Bill Fenner has also   
  reviewed the draft). Because this draft only requests IANA 
  assignments, this draft per se doesn't get implemented (although the
  associated code points, when assigned, will be used by other drafts).
