As we advance SLP to draft standard, we will also advance an applicability statement. This will offload several aspects which currently burden RFC 2608.
- The 'domain of applicability' description
- The backward compatitibility between versions (see the compatibility matrix.
- The relationship between the different SLP specifications which will include SLPv2bis, SLP DHCP options, SLP API, SLP MIB.
- Other proposed standards related to SLP (Extensions, etc.) will be discussed but not recommended since the rules of the Internet Standards Process RFC 2026 section 3.2 prevent this.
As we come up with more issues and concrete text for the applicability statement, this document will grow. This is the scratchpad for the applicability statement internet draft until it gets written.
