Noel,

It would be wonderful if you could submit your proposal on "extended
ICMP messages" to the task forces (INARC, which I chair, would be only
ecstatic to receive that, but others might also). Wonder would be even
more enhanced if your ideas were stuffed into an RFC. On the other hand,
if I read your message literally, you want to get your ideas "into
the ICMP spec," which might be interpreted to bypass the public comment
phase. I'm sure you don't mean to imply that.

The idea of an ICMP Spy message has been rattling around for some time.
It might be a time whose opportunity has come.

Dave
