Re: WG dcoument status
Regarding the generalized signaling draft, I submitted
several comments after the last IETF identifying technical
issues involving bandwidth encoding, ethernet LSP encoding type,
notify message, protection info, switching type, and waveband support.
(Message IDs: <3C1F67D1.32D01F90@tellabs.com>, <3C1F670C.C51923FC@tellabs.com>,
<3C1F6B8F.54CC2ECF@tellabs.com>, and <3C1F6835.D112FABF@tellabs.com>)
These have not been addressed. In several cases I think it is not at
all clear which value of a field would be used in a given situation
or whether a field is required or not.
Without some technical feedback, it is impossible for me to determine
whether there are good reasons to keep the drafts as they are or
whether there are good reasons to change it. In either case, the text
in the draft seems insufficient to clearly describe an interoperable
I am not convinced the draft is ready for IETF last call.
