Technical Summary This document specifies a Gateway-Initiated Dual-Stack lite (GI-DS-lite) applicable to certain tunnel-based access architectures. GI-DS-lite extends existing access tunnels beyond the access gateway to an IPv4-IPv4 NAT using softwires. Working Group Summary This document was discussed in depth and well-reviewed. The overall WG consensus is strong to publish this document. As discussed during the first IESG review of IPR disclosure datatracker.ietf.org/ipr/1630, the patent to which the disclosure refers is available, at present, only in Chinese. In response to the IESG discussion, the WG was asked to reconsider and comment on its decision to progress this document. There was no response to the request for discussion. Therefore, the document will be returned to the IETF for review in its current state. Document Quality As far as we know, there are no existing implementations now, but some vendors have plans to implement and release the related product. Personnel Yong Cui <firstname.lastname@example.org> is the Document Shepherd. Ralph Droms <email@example.com> is the Responsible AD.
