Summary:  Almost ready


This seems to be very useful documentation of legacy practice, and it seems like a good
idea to register a port number for it.

Minor issue:

6.  IANA Considerations

--> needs an introductory sentence asking for a Registered TCP port according to the
following description.

         Service Name - syslog-tcp
         Transport Protocol - TCP
         Assignee - IESG <iesg at>
         Contact - IETF Chair <chair at>
         Description - syslog protocol (RFC 5424) over TCP
         Reference - This document
         Port Number - 10514

--> actually that should be <TBD> for consistency with section 3.3.

   Note to the IANA - we're making an assumption that this document
   needs to be compliant with Section 8.1.1. of RFC 6335.  If so, then
   the above table is our best guess.  We'd also like to use 10514/tcp
   for this protocol as syslog over udp is assigned 514.

--> this note should be tagged for removal by the RFC Editor


3.4.2.  Non-Transparing-Framing
