Although reports of its death are greatly 
exaggerated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CLNS) 
-  "CLNP is still widely used today in many 
telecommunications networks around the world" - I 
do not believe that anyone is advocating its use 
for connectionless networking in space. 
Therefore, global deprecation of references to 
8473 in CCSDS documents seems to be appropriate. 
However, the SIS Area should make the final determination relative to its fate.
