[802SEC] IEEE 802.3 comments on P802.1AS


We held an 802.3 ad hoc meeting to discuss the AV Bridging PAR and provide the following comments to 802.1.  I will forward other comments (if any) from individuals separately.

1.  The PAR describes the scope expected and promised in early work in this area.  The five criteria on the other hand appear to narrow the project scope to only "full duplex Ethernet or similar links".  Are there any other MAC WGs that provide such links than 802.3?  The PAR and criteria should agree on the scope and application of the intended standard.  If the project is only intended to address 802.3 links, the PAR should say that.

2.  The PAR form is not complete.  Item 16 is not dated.  Item 17 should reference related projects in the digital home area (e.g., UpNP).  Item 20b is not answered.

We look forward to your response.
