Received changes through RFC Editor sync (changed abstract to 'This document presents two improved metrics for packet reordering, namely, Reorder Density (RD) and Reorder Buffer-occupancy Density (RBD). A threshold is used to clearly define when a packet is considered lost, to bound computational complexity at O(N), and to keep the memory requirement for evaluation independent of N, where N is the length of the packet sequence. RD is a comprehensive metric that captures the characteristics of reordering, while RBD evaluates the sequences from the point of view of recovery from reordering.

These metrics are simple to compute yet comprehensive in their characterization of packet reordering. The measures are robust and orthogonal to packet loss and duplication. This memo provides information for the Internet community.')

[Ballot comment]
Has anybody asked the authors of this draft about the license or copyright terms of their algorithm?  While of course it's not necessary for them to say anything, they might like to explicitly put the algorithm in the public domain or something like that.
