This memo describes a mechanism to relay the state(s) of an Internet Draft to the reader. This mechanism may be used, in part, to encourage or discourage review submission, test suite creation, and prototype implementation of the entire draft or its portions. The state of the draft is declared using a human-friendly notation suitable for automated extraction of standard states.
