This is an Informational RFC that describes how other standards
documents can be combined.  No new mechanisms or recommendations are
defined.

   This document describes how the Deterministic Networking MPLS data
   plane can operate over a TSN sub-network data plane.  This document
   does not define new procedures or processes.

Nothing notable.

The document is an Informational document. Early implementations of IP
over DetNet were demonstrated by WG members.

The Shepherd reviewed this document as it progressed through the WG as
well as part of Last Call.  All significant comments have been resolved.

> (4) Does the document Shepherd have any concerns about the depth or
> breadth of the reviews that have been performed?

No

> (5) Do portions of the document need review from a particular or from
> broader perspective, e.g., security, operational complexity, AAA, DNS,
> DHCP, XML, or internationalization? If so, describe the review that took
> place.

No.

> (6) Describe any specific concerns or issues that the Document Shepherd
> has with this document that the Responsible Area Director and/or the
> IESG should be aware of? For example, perhaps he or she is uncomfortable
> with certain parts of the document, or has concerns whether there really
> is a need for it. In any event, if the WG has discussed those issues and
> has indicated that it still wishes to advance the document, detail those
> concerns here.

No concerns, assuming published as Informational.

> (7) Has each author confirmed that any and all appropriate IPR
> disclosures required for full conformance with the provisions of BCP 78
> and BCP 79 have already been filed. If not, explain why?

Yes, see
https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/detnet/gJj-BUPESxSEcAlksqhXMaxhBqg/

> (8) Has an IPR disclosure been filed that references this document? If
> so, summarize any WG discussion and conclusion regarding the IPR
> disclosures.

No IPR has been disclosed. 

> (9) How solid is the WG consensus behind this document? Does it
> represent the strong concurrence of a few individuals, with others being
> silent, or does the WG as a whole understand and agree with it?

I think the document has good support from a narrow set of WG participants.

> (10) Has anyone threatened an appeal or otherwise indicated extreme
> discontent? If so, please summarise the areas of conflict in separate
> email messages to the Responsible Area Director. (It should be in a
> separate email because this questionnaire is publicly available.)

No

> (11) Identify any ID nits the Document Shepherd has found in this
> document. (See http://www.ietf.org/tools/idnits/ and the Internet-Drafts
> Checklist). Boilerplate checks are not enough; this check needs to be

No.

Idnits issues have been fixed.

> (12) Describe how the document meets any required formal review

> reviews.

N/A.

> (13) Have all references within this document been identified as either
> normative or informative?

Yes.

> (14) Are there normative references to documents that are not ready for
> advancement or are otherwise in an unclear state? If such normative
> references exist, what is the plan for their completion?

No.

> (15) Are there downward normative references references (see RFC 3967)?
> If so, list these downward references to support the Area Director in
> the Last Call procedure.

No.

> (16) Will publication of this document change the status of any existing
> RFCs? Are those RFCs listed on the title page header, listed in the
> abstract, and discussed in the introduction? If the RFCs are not listed
> in the Abstract and Introduction, explain why, and point to the part of

No, N/A.

> (17) Describe the Document Shepherd's review of the IANA considerations

> reasonable name for the new registry has been suggested (see RFC 8126).

No requests are made in the document.

> (18) List any new IANA registries that require Expert Review for future
> allocations. Provide any public guidance that the IESG would find useful
> in selecting the IANA Experts for these new registries.

None.

> Shepherd to validate sections of the document written in a formal

N/A

> (20) If the document contains a YANG module, has the module been checked
> with any of the recommended validation tools
> (https://trac.ietf.org/trac/ops/wiki/yang-review-tools) for syntax and
> formatting validation? If there are any resulting errors or warnings,

There are no yang models.
