Differentiated Services [RFC 2474, RFC 2475] introduces the notion of
Per Hop Behaviors (PHBs) that define how traffic belonging to a
particular behavior aggregate is treated at an individual network
node. In IP packet headers, PHBs are not indicated as such; instead
Differentiated Services Codepoint (DSCP) values are used. There are
only 64 possible DSCP values, but there is no such limit on the
number of PHBs. In a given network domain, there is a locally defined
mapping between DSCP values and PHBs. Standardized PHBs recommend a
DSCP mapping, but network operators may choose alternative mappings.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
