Are you sure you included MIP6? The discussion we had on this
previously had to do with MIP4 WG, which also has RADIUS work.

Ok. So both of you seem to be saying option b. (The
dates you give are somewhat different, however. )
The MIP6 charter item is targeted for Feb 2007, and
could probably be postponed. But I worry that if we are
to align (and I see no reason to NOT align the attributes
if we are doing both anyway) then both RADIUS *and* Diameter
work will depend on the delivery of the RADEXT extension design.
My preliminary conclusion is that the MIP6 charter
item should stay but we need to discuss the timing
between all three WGs (mip6, dime, radext).
