RE: I-D ACTION:draft-andersson-mpls-g-chng-proc-00.txt
Thanks for your clarification. A couple of points:
1) Is the decision on how to deal with extension requests, an IESG
decision or an IETF consensus is required?
2) No one can stop other SDOs from extending any IETF protocol
3) The draft says:
"No individual, vendor, SDO or forum should be able create what is viewed
to be a major extension to an IETF protocol on its own and
legitimately be able to claim that implementations that implement the
extension are compliant to the IETF specification."
So if the other SDOs don't claim IETF compliance, rather they claim their
respective organizations compliance, there should not be any problem. And if
they mess up nobody would blame IETF for that.
