2483    Mealling        Jan 1999        URI Resolution Services
                                        Necessary for URN Resolution

Retrieving the resource identified by a Uniform Resource Identifier
(URI) is only one of the operations that can be performed on a URI.  One
might also ask for and get a list of other identifiers that are aliases
for the original URI or a bibliographic description of the resource the
URI denotes, for example. This applies to both Uniform Resource Names
(URNs) and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs). Uniform Resource
Characteristics (URCs) are discussed in this document but only as
descriptions of resources rather than identifiers.  This memo defines an
Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

2469    Narten          Dec 1998        A Caution On The Canonical
                                        Ordering Of Link-Layer Addresses

Protocols such as ARP and Neighbor Discovery have data fields that
contain link-layer addresses. In order to interoperate properly, a
sender setting such a field must insure that the receiver extracts those
bits and interprets them correctly.  In most cases, such fields must be
in "canonical form".  Unfortunately, not all LAN adaptors are consistent
in their use of canonical form, and implementations may need to
explicitly bit swap individual bytes in order to obtain the correct
format.  This document provides information to implementors to help them
avoid the pitfall of using non-canonical forms when canonical forms are
required.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
