This document defines a set of requirements for NATs handling the
Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP).  These requirements
allow DCCP applications, such as streaming applications, to operate
consistently, and they are very similar to the TCP requirements for
NATs, which have already been published by the IETF.  Ensuring that
NATs meet this set of requirements will greatly increase the
likelihood that applications using DCCP will function properly.  This 
document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
improvements.

This document is a product of the Behavior Engineering for Hindrance Avoidance Working Group of the IETF.
