Technical Summary This document provides essential corrections and clarifications to RFC 3095 (ROHC core), RFC 3241 (ROHC over PPP), RFC 3843 (IP profile), 4019 (UDP-Lite profile), and 4362 (LLA profile). It contains formal changes (always designed based on "least complex modification or most logical interpretation to make the protocol unambiguously defined"), as well as clarifications to questions often raised by implementers. Implementation experience as well as observations from current ROHC protocol work have been guiding the technical content development of the document. Working Group Summary This document has grown through concerns from implementers. For each item identified, strong consensus around the problem and its corresponding solution has always been established through an open process on the ROHC mailing list. The final document has been thoroughly reviewed by the WG, and there is WG consensus that the document should now be published to update the ROHC RFCs it corrects and/or clarifies. Protocol Quality Magnus Westerlund reviewed the document for the IESG. The document was also reviewed by the committed WG document reviewers, Carl Knutsson and Biplab Sarkar, appointed by the ROHC WG chair.
