IESG note There is a note of concern from an RMT WG Chair in the ballot comments:  these documents retain all the RMT WG boilerplate.  History:  they were not handled by the WG because the authors stopped work on them (stopped doing any updates, did not appear for over a year), so their work item was dropped by consensus.

The Reliable Multicast Transport (RMT) Working Group has been chartered to standardize reliable multicast transport services and protocol instantiations, which include the tree-based ACK (TRACK) protocol. This document is concerned with defining the building block for auto-configuration of the logical ACK-tree. According to the charter, a building block is 'a coarse-grained modular component that is common to multiple protocols along with abstract APIs that define a building block's access methods and their arguments.' The TRACK BB mechanisms [5] will operate on the logical ACK-tree that is configured by this TREE BB in the TRACK PI sessions. This document is made based on the guidelines for the RMT BB [2] and the recommendations for TREE BB [4].
