Reading over the threads again, it appears that "neighbor discovery"
may be a useful function. However, LMP is a *link* management protocol,
where neighbors are configured (at least as a starting point), and
*links* are discovered, and link properties correlated.
My suggestion (as co-chair) is that LMP proceed as is, and if folks
think that neighbor management is a useful function, then they can
write a draft, perhaps building on LMP, and we'll judge WG interest
in this function.

To my mind (as implementor), the notion of control channel seems simple
enough; a control network is one instantiation of a control channel.

Excellent idea! As I said, if there is interest, the best way to proceed
is to follow up with an ID.
