A number of IPv4 options have become obsolete in practice, but have
never been formally deprecated.  This document deprecates such IPv4
options, thus cleaning up the corresponding IANA registry.
Additionally, it obsoletes RFCs 1385, 1393, 1475, and 1770, and
requests that the RFC Editor change their status to Historic.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
