Some networks require communication between an interior and exterior
portion of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or through a concatenation
of such networks resulting in a nested VPN, but have sensitivities
about what information is communicated across the boundary, especially
while providing quality of service to communications with different
precedence.  This note seeks to outline the issues and the nature of
the proposed solutions based on the framework for Integrated Services
operation over Diffserv networks as described in RFC 2998.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
