Technical Summary

   This document recommends that several TCP extensions that have never
   seen widespread use be moved to Historic status.  The affected RFCs
   are RFC1072, RFC1106, RFC1110, RFC1145, RFC1146, RFC1379,
   RFC1644 and RFC1693.

Working Group Summary

  There was debate about whether RFC1263 should be included in this document
  because it is not an extension; it is an Informational document that describes an
  architectural approach that the TCP community chose not to follow. RFC1263 has been
  removed from the list of documents to be declared Historic.

  There was debate about whether the Alternate Checksum option should be removed
  from this document. It was decided to keep this item in the list.

Document Quality

  This document declares certain features historic because they have not been widely
   implemented.
