One thing I remember from the last time I have read the 'matching' draft
is that I thought there isn't enough guidance for users (e.g. other IETF
WGs,...) about which matching scheme to choose. I can very well immagine
some IETF WG reading the 'matching' document and be rather confused about
what which one to choose. So to the extent possible, I'd prefer that as
much as possible about 'choosing matching schemes' goes into the IETF
draft.

[If the situation in the matching draft has changed, that would be good.
I'll of course make that comment on the LTRU list as soon as possible.]
