RFC 7511, "Scenic Routing for IPv6", April 2015

Source of RFC: INDEPENDENT

Errata ID: 4322

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Joe Klein

Section 4 says:


It should say:

Additional security considerations of overexposure to solar 
radiation, or buffer-bloat in culturally important places, 
leading to excessive delayed packets, directly attributed
to forgetting sunscreen, excessive adult beverages, etc, 
WILL result in a decreased reliability.

There are no actions requested at this time.

Section 2.1 says:

0 - Don't use Avian IP Carrier links (maybe the packet is
    afraid of pigeons).

It should say:

0 - Don't use Avian IP Carrier links (maybe the packet is
    afraid of avians).

Notes:

Neither RFC 1149 nor RFC 6214 mandates any particular species. If it is
required to specify a given species, an additional Species ID field
would be needed in the option.

Section 1 says:

This document defines another way to deal with Green IT for traffic
and network engineers and will hopefully aid the wellbeing of a
myriad of network packets around the world.  It proposes Scenic
Routing, which incorporates the green-ness of a network path into the
routing decision.  A routing engine implementing Scenic Routing
should therefore choose paths based on Avian IP Carriers [RFC1149]
and/or wireless technologies so the packets will get out of the
miles/kilometers of dark fibers that are in the ground and get as
much fresh-air time and sunlight as possible.

Routing, which incorporates the green-ness of a network path into the

Quality of Service [RFC2549] and/or wireless technologies so the 
packets will get out of the miles/kilometers of dark fibers that are
in the ground and get as much fresh-air time and sunlight as possible.

Notes:

Although RFC2549 ("IP over Avian Carriers with Quality of Service") does not obsolete RFC1149, the recommendations in the former improve Scenic Routing quality considerably, contributing to a subsequently more positive result in the TCP Mood option defined in [RFC5841].

Section 2 says:

      The lowest-order two bits (XY) are currently unused and reserved
      for future use.

It should say:

      The lowest-order two bits (XY) are currently unused and reserved
      for a rainy day.

Notes:

Packets should be free to use spare SRO parameter bits during work hours (for bits in leu) or in their own spare time.
