Ballot Text

Technical Summary
   This document provides essential corrections and clarifications
   to RFC 3095 (ROHC core), RFC 3241 (ROHC over PPP), RFC 3843 (IP
   profile), 4019 (UDP-Lite profile), and 4362 (LLA profile). It
   contains formal changes (always designed based on "least complex
   modification or most logical interpretation to make the protocol
   unambiguously defined"), as well as clarifications to questions
   often raised by implementers. Implementation experience as well
   as observations from current ROHC protocol work have been 
   guiding the technical content development of the document.
Working Group Summary
   This document has grown through concerns from implementers. For
   each item identified, strong consensus around the problem and
   its corresponding solution has always been established through
   an open process on the ROHC mailing list. The final document has
   been thoroughly reviewed by the WG, and there is WG consensus
   that the document should now be published to update the ROHC
   RFCs it corrects and/or clarifies.

Protocol Quality
   Magnus Westerlund reviewed the document for the IESG. The document
   was also reviewed by the committed WG document reviewers, Carl
   Knutsson and Biplab Sarkar, appointed by the ROHC WG chair.
