RE: Section 2.4, item (f) of draft-ietf-ipngwg-icmp-v3-04.txt


Thanks for pointing this out.  What do you think about the following
as the replacement text?

        The rate-limiting parameters SHOULD be configurable.  In the
        case of a token-bucket implementation, the best defaults depend
        on the computational power of the device and the speed/bandwidth 
        of the interfaces that it has (e.g., a high-end router vs. an 
        embedded host, a 10G ethernet vs. a T1 interface).  For example, 
        in a small/mid -sized device with limited bandwidth interfaces, 
        the possible defaults could be B=10, N=10/s.
