RE: Issue 272 resolution
Glen Zorn said:
"Some time ago I suggested a solution for this problem in the form of
splitting the Ext-Type field in two, one octet being the actual Ext-Type &
the other becoming an "AVP-Type. There has been almost no discussion of
this proposal; since there is other work waiting upon the disposition of
this problem, I will make the changes I described this week unless I hear
loud screams to the contrary."
We have already had an extensive discussion on the list as to whether the
Ext-Type field should be one or two octets. The WG verdict was to have it
be two octets.
"Splitting" this field so as to make the AVP-Type one octet seems like it
would be effectively reversing the (tortuously arrived at) WG consensus.
