This document describes a simple process that allows authors of
Internet-Drafts to record the status of known implementations by
including an Implementation Status section.  This will allow
reviewers and working groups to assign due consideration to documents
that have the benefit of running code, which may serve as evidence of
valuable experimentation and feedback that have made the implemented
protocols more mature.

The process in this document is offered as an experiment.  Authors of
Internet-Drafts are encouraged to consider using the process for
their documents, and working groups are invited to think about
applying the process to all of their protocol specifications.  The
authors of this document intend to collate experiences with this
experiment and to report them to the community.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any
kind. Discussion and suggestions for improvement are requested.
Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
