Hello all,

GTSMbis document has been revived. I'm currently holding the pen, and comments would be appreciated. It should include all the comments received so far.
The most important changes:
- Reduce multi-hop scenario (TrustRadius etc.) to only a mention in the appendix
 - GTSM procedure text rewritten based on Alex's suggestions
- require that also TCP RSTs, ICMP errors, etc. that relate to a GTSM service must be sent with TTL=255. - require that TTL of originated GTSM traffic must not be decremented by the forwarding engine.
 - Update the security considerations on tunneling.

Comments on these changes would particularly appreciated.


   The use of a packet's Time to Live (TTL) (IPv4) or Hop Limit (IPv6)
   to verify whether the packet originated within the same link has been
   used in many recent protocols.  This document generalizes this
   technique.  This document obsoletes RFC 3682.
