The Robust Header Compression (ROHC) protocol provides an efficient,
flexible, and future-proof header compression concept.  It is
designed to operate efficiently and robustly over various link
technologies with different characteristics.

The ROHC framework, along with a set of compression profiles, was
initially defined in RFC 3095.  To improve and simplify the ROHC
specifications, this document explicitly defines the ROHC framework
and the profile for uncompressed separately.  More specifically, the
definition of the framework does not modify or update the definition
of the framework specified by RFC 3095.

This specification obsoletes RFC 4995.  It fixes one interoperability
issue that was erroneously introduced in RFC 4995, and adds some
minor clarifications.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
