This brief document serves to analyze, justify and record the deprecation
of the never-implemented and now-incorrect specification of iFCP address
translation mode. The document also records the state of Internet Protocol
Number 133, which was allocated for a pre-standard version of FCIP.
Working Group Summary
There was no controversy and full consensus during the entire process.
The document was updated only to enhance clarity, based on comments
The document is of high quality and the states of both protocols
were well-researched by the authors prior to publication. The document
underwent review by Joe Touch, who is a member the Transport Directorate,
and an expert reviewer for port assignments; it was reviewed by the
operations directorate; and it was reviewed by members of the Fibre Channel
There are deliberate downrefs to ANSI/INCITS and ISO/IEC Fibre Channel standards,
and to the IANA IP protocol number registry.
