This memo suggests a modified specification for defining the 20-bit
Flow Label field using a hybrid approach that includes options to
provide IntServ as well as DiffServ-based support for Quality of
Service. It also compares various suggested approaches for defining
the 20-bit Flow Label field in IPv6 Base Header based on RFC 2460
(December 1998) and draft-conta-ipv-flow-label-02.txt by Conta &
Carpenter (July 2001). The resultant mechanism is fully
implementable and unambiguous as even the lower-level details have
been worked out as may be required for real implementations.

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
