I have reviewed draft-ietf-aqm-fq-implementation-02 as part of the
Operational directorate's ongoing effort to review all IETF documents
being processed by the IESG.  These comments were written with the
intent of improving the operational aspects of the IETF
drafts. Comments that are not addressed in last call may be included
in AD reviews during the IESG review.  Document editors and WG chairs
should treat these comments just like any other last call comments.

I believe the document is 'Ready' for publication.

The informational document is to some extend a tutorial on queuing,
marking and dropping algorithms. The main observation stated in the
conclusions of the document is that marking/dropping algorithms are
conceptually separate from queueing mechanisms and that specifications
should decouple them even though they might be implemented in a
coupled manner. I think it would help the reader if the abstract would
be expanded.


   This note discusses implementation strategies for coupled queuing and
   mark/drop algorithms.


   This note discusses queuing and marking/dropping algorithms. While
   these algorithms are often implemented in a coupled manner, this
   note argues that specifications, measurements, and comparisons
   should decouple the different algorithms and their contributions to
   system behavior.
