This document investigates the benefits of cross-area work in the IETF. It is examines existing cross-area work and identifies other possibilities for work that spans more than one area. The intention is to help community members who focus their work within a specific area to understand related work in other areas and to motivate efficient cooperation across different areas in the IETF.
