   The ILNP document set has had extensive review within the IRTF
   Routing Research Group.  ILNP is one of the recommendations made
   by the RG Chairs. Separately, various refereed research papers
   on ILNP have also been published during this decade. So the
   ideas contained herein have had much broader review than
   IRTF Routing RG. The views in this document were considered
   controversial by the Routing RG, but the RG reached a consensus
   that the document still should be published. The Routing RG has
   had remarkably little consensus on anything, so virtually all
   Routing RG outputs are considered controversial.

Abstract

   This document describes common (i.e. version independent)
   engineering details for the Identifier-Locator Network Protocol
   (ILNP), which is an experimental, evolutionary enhancement to IP.
   This document is a product of the IRTF Routing RG.
