RE: [Diffserv] QoSSIG BOF


thanks for your honest response, I think this is the right attitude what 
we need for making QoS signaling happen.

I believe that and think the same would happen if all the "QoSsig" funs 
started to melt their stuff for getting The ultimate QoS protocol.

But does it mean that IETF is not the right place for standardizing QoS 
signaling for IP?

Many groups from my previous list started with a silent design period 
and made a prototype for verification. I think it is time for synchronizing 
theese works and check where are the limits of QoS signaling and what 
is the cost of different functionality.

I may be super naive but still believe in that IETF can provide a forum for 
discussing a common framework for QoS signaling in future internet and 
reviewing the vigorous alternatives.
