Technical Summary: This short specification provides a simple addition to 6LoWPAN Header Compression that enables the compression of generic headers and header-like payloads, without a need to define a new header compression scheme for each new such header or header-like payload. Working Group Summary: There were no particular points of contention in the WG process, and the consensus behind publication of this document as a Standards Track RFC appears solid. Document Quality: There are multiple experimental implementations. There have been no specific MIB doctor, Media Type or other expert reviews done. Personnel: The Document Shepherd is Ulrich Herberg. The Responsible Area Director is Brian Haberman.
