Technical Summary For cases where location servers have access to emergency routing information they are able to return routing information with the location information if the location request includes a request for the desired routing information. This document specifies an extension to the HELD protocol to support this function. Working Group Summary Was there anything in WG process that is worth noting? For example, was there controversy about particular points or were there decisions where the consensus was particularly rough? There was significant work group participation in discussion of the approach taken within the draft, since it introduces a different way to use the HELD protocol, which originally was designed exclusively to convey location information. There were some controversies noted on the list, and all dialogues were efficiently attended to during the development stage. One final objection was noted and addressed by the draft author, with no follow up provided by the commenter, despite ample opportunity/time to do so. A successful development progression is documented in the ECRIT work group minutes and in email list archives. Document Quality No existing implementations are known to exist. There have been several vendors that have been involved in the development and review of the document. Personnel Document shepherd is Roger Marshall. Area Director is Alissa Cooper.
