This document describes how the experimental TCP option codepoints
can concurrently support multiple TCP extensions, even within the
same connection, using a new IANA TCP experiment identifier.
This approach is robust to experiments that are not registered and to 
those that do not use this sharing mechanism.  It is recommended for all 
new TCP options that use these codepoints.

This document is a product of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
