This document proposes a new revenue source for the IETF to support
standardization activities: protocol field naming rights, i.e., the 
association of commercial brands with protocol fields.  This memo 
describes a process for assignment of rights and explores some of the 
issues associated with the process.  Individuals or organizations that 
wish to purchase naming rights for one or more protocol fields are 
expected to follow this process.  This memo provides information for the 
Internet community.

It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.
