This document specifies how the features of the Service Location
Protocol, Version 2 allow for vendor extensibility safely, with
no possibility of collisions.  The specification introduces a new
SLPv2 extension:  The Vendor Opaque Extension.  While proprietary
protocol extensions are not encouraged by IETF standards, it is
important that they not hinder interoperability of compliant
implementations when they are undertaken.  This document udpates RFC
2608, "The Service Location Protocol."

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF list and the RFC-DIST list.
