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



Mukesh,

A first sentence like:

"The rate-limiting parameters SHOULD be configurable per node,
if the node has similar speed/bandwidth interfaces, and/or per 
interface, if the node has disimilar speed/bandwidth interfaces".

or

"The rate-limiting parameters SHOULD be configurable per node,
if the node has similar interfaces, and/or per interface, if the node 
has disimilar speed/bandwidth interfaces".

would be more explicit/descriptive.

The rest is fine.

Thanks,
Alex
