1.  Introduction

   This document pools some extensions to the Resource Directory
   [I-D.ietf-core-resource-directory] that might be useful but have no
   place in the original document.

   They might become individual documents for IETF submission, simple
   registrations in the RD Parameter Registry at IANA, or grow into a
   shape where they can be submitted as a collection of tools.

   At its current state, this draft is a collection of ideas.

2.  Reverse Proxy requests

   When a registrant registers at a Resource Directory, it might not
   have a suitable address it can use as a base address.  Typical
   reasons include being inside a NAT without control over port
   forwarding, or only being able to open outgoing connections (as
   program running inside a web browser utilizing CoAP over WebSocket
   [RFC8323] might be).
