   that would allow certain applications, such as streaming applications
   to operate consistently.

Working Group Summary

   There is consensus in the working group to publish this document. 

Document Quality

   There are no known implementations. This was WG last called and
   reviewed by the DCCP WG. There are two normative reference to 
   documents (draft-ietf-behave-nat-icmp and 
   draft-ietf-dccp-simul-open) not yet published but that doesn't 
   preclude progressing this document until it ends up in the 
   RFC-editor's queue.
