The Context Replication (CR) mechanism  for Robust Header
Compression (ROHC) uses an existing compression context for creating
a new compression context, thus, saves sending some of the header
information from the compressor to the decompressor during context
initialization. The current CR mechanism could also save sending an
IP address from the header information. However, it either sends a
whole IP address or doesn't send an IP address. This Internet Draft
enhances the CR mechanism by providing an option of sending
compressed IP address.

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
