Glen, during last week's XP WG telcon, we started to discuss DS805 and
DS807. Unfortunately we did not make a lot of progress on these DS's
because the WG wanted some clarification which you were not available to
provide. I took the to-do from that meeting to ask you for clarification.
In particular:

re. DS805
-- "certain intermediaries": does this mean a message passes through
several intermediaries, and/or a message may pass through different types
of intermediaries?
-- "track the identity/IP of the caller": does the caller mean the entity
that first generated the message, or the last entity to have passed along a
message (such as an intermediary)?
-- "Another example", the WG was concerned that the last sentence was
describing a rather different scenario, perhaps another scenario that
merits its own DS?

re. DS807
-- general comment that the "supplimentary text" is indeed too
implementation specific for a DS
-- the nature of the tracking needs further clarification. For example, is
the trace available for inspection en-route, is it available at the final
destination, is there an intent to provide a mechanism to send the trace
from the final destination to the originating sender?

Please can you clarify these DS's, if possible, in time for this week's
