   This document specifies the exact documents that make up the complete
   Dynamic Delegation Discovery System (DDDS).  DDDS is an abstract
   algorithm for applying dynamically retrieved string transformation
   rules to an application-unique string.

   This document along with RFC 3402, RFC 3403 and RFC 3404 obsolete RFC
   2168 and RFC 2915, as well as updates RFC 2276.

1. Intended Audience

   This document and the documents that it references are intended for
   anyone attempting to implement or understand the generic DDDS
   algorithm, URI Resolution, ENUM telephone number to URI resolution,
   and the NAPTR DNS resource record.  The reader is warned that reading
   one of the documents in this series without reading the others will
   probably lead to misunderstandings and interoperability problems.

2. Introduction

   The Dynamic Delegation Discovery System is used to implement lazy
   binding of strings to data, in order to support dynamically
   configured delegation systems.  The DDDS functions by mapping some
   unique string to data stored within a DDDS Database by iteratively
   applying string transformation rules until a terminal condition is
   reached.  This document defines the entire DDDS by listing the
   documents that make up the complete specification at this time.
