- Steve Deering: Ask Routing Research Group to study what is breaking routing in the default-free zone and analyze multicast routing.

IAB DRAFTS IN PROGRESS:
- Brian Carpenter: Transparency
- Ongoing. Expect to modify after IAB Utrecht workshop.

- Ongoing. Received no comments. Will publish.
- Ned Freed: Security, firewalls, proxies, etc.
- Ongoing. Draft out before Utrecht workshop.

- On hold.
- Steve Deering for Charlie Perkins: The case for IPv6.
- Ongoing. Review comments to be incorporated.
- security considerations section–will continue to require, believe reasonably successful at getting attention to security.
Question raised whether the IAB should hold a third security workshop? Not in ’99, and will need to examine what we would expect to accomplish. One possibility is to develop better threat models.
- informational RFCs–discussion re. should we continue to publish all random document submitted, rather than focusing on results from IETF Working Groups. Demands significant attention from IESG (could some of this be delegated to Area Directorates?). Two concerns: informational RFCs used for marketing purposes; informational RFCs that should have come through a working group. Continue discussions at an Oslo breakfast meeting.
- scaling of IETF meetings–skills/training of working group chairs, design teams, etc.
- advancing IPv6 beyond where it is today–reluctant to do this until have more deployment.
- W3C–they go in their own direction, and expect us to follow; we need to work better together.
- informational RFCs–standards track documents that are submitted by individuals, but would probably benefit from working group attention. Need to encourage them to engage with others in the community.
- Old RFCs that are stuck at Proposed Standard level–clean up database, move to historical, etc.
- Is the IESG doing the right job?–chartering groups vs. perfecting documents, etc.
