To some extent I wonder how much of this is really a multi6 problem. As
you point out, we will never know how long ULP will continue to try
before giving up. This might render ULP hints useless in that
particular case. We also don't know what failure detection is in use
for the ULPs. More, if there is also a rerouting event causing
distribution of bad news, and perhaps a new set of locators, or the
signaling to move to new locators, this might trigger a "race-like"
condition, depending in what order the priorities are set and in which
order they arrive where, and then actually making the case worse - no?
Would it not be better to simply say that survivability and
"restoration" time is due to these X factors, they can be influenced by
this - but they are not an issue per se for the multi6 layer. They
might depend on ULP signaling, BGP convergence, etc. But that is
Am I making my life to easy here?
