1.  Introduction

   This document extends the base PCP [RFC6887] with the ability to
   associate a human-readable description with a PCP-instantiated
   mapping.  It does so by defining a new DESCRIPTION option.

   This PCP option can be used in both simple scenarios with a PCP
   client and PCP server, as well as in more complex scenarios where an
   interworking function is used to proxy between a UPnP IGD Control
   Point and a PCP server [RFC6970].

   Querying the PCP server to get the description text of an existing
   mapping is out of scope.

2.  Format

   The format of the DESCRIPTION option is shown in Figure 1.
