Re: I-D Action:draft-takacs-ccamp-revertive-ps-00.txt
a neat draft that does what it sets out to do. For the moment I've no
actual comments on the draft itself (might have when I'd time to think
about in detail), but more meta-question.
It is not a given that the revertive behavior always is beneficial. In
networks that are very dynamic it might be optional to revert, let the
traffic stay on the protecting path or replace them altogether.
Wouldn't it be interesting to discuss more in detail when a revertive
behavior is needed/wanted and when it is not.
A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
Title : GMPLS RSVP-TE recovery extension for data plane initiated reversion

RSVP-TE recovery extensions are specified in [RFC4872] and [RFC4873].
Currently these extensions cannot signal request for revertive
protection to the remote endpoint. This document defines a new bit
to signal this request and a new field to specify a wait-to-restore
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
document are to be interpreted as described in
