The IESG failed to convince me that this work needs to be conducted
other than on experimental code points. However, I will not stand 
against the IESG consensus, and will allow the IESG to make its
decision to allocate a code point.


The LISP documents (currently in the RFC Editor Queue for publication
as Experimental RFCs in the IETF Stream) have clear and unambiguous
text to caution the user about the unknown side-effects of conducting
the experiment on the Internet. For example, draft-ietf-lisp-23 says:

   This experimental specification has areas that require additional
   experience and measurement.  It is NOT RECOMMENDED for deployment
   beyond experimental situations.  Results of experimentation may lead
   to modifications and enhancements of protocol mechanisms defined in
   this document.  See Section 15 for specific, known issues that are in            
   need of further work during development, implementation, and

   An examination of the implications of LISP on Internet traffic,
   applications, routers, and security is for future study.  This
   analysis will explain what role LISP can play in scalable routing and
   will also look at scalability and levels of state required for
   encapsulation, decapsulation, liveness, and so on.

It seems to me highly desirable that similar caveats be applied to this
work and added to the front of all ILNP documents. I strongly urge the
authors and IRSG to apply such text.
