Thanks for these comments, it has been left for further consideration
within this document, but you know that they are "differences" between
Sonet and SDH OH in particular at the POH: J1/J2, B3, G3/K4 others are
mainly J0 at RS/SOH and K2 MS/LOH.
Nevertheless, the key question is does it impact the control plane
specification ? And this is one of the purpose of this document (again
at a first stage).
So, prior to propose a merge of the control plane code-points i would
like first to ask you if the current proposals made in order to provide
interoperability have been accepted and integrated. Knowing that we can
then evaluate the impact on the control plane and after we could
