Dear all,

This is the latest revision of the path vector document. In this revision, we have addressed all the comments in the chair review [1-4] and fixed most of the issues raised by IDNits [5] (note that the TBD issue is fixed as mentioned in [4]).

There are a few warnings reported by IDNits on the use of example IPv4 addresses, which will be fixed once the submission tool is made available again.

&gt; A new version of I-D, draft-ietf-alto-path-vector-14.txt
&gt; has been successfully submitted by Kai Gao and posted to the
&gt; IETF repository.
&gt; Name:		draft-ietf-alto-path-vector
&gt; Revision:	14
&gt; Title:		ALTO Extension: Path Vector
&gt; Document date:	2021-02-22
&gt; Group:		alto

&gt; Abstract:
&gt;    This document is an extension to the base Application-Layer Traffic
&gt;    Optimization (ALTO) protocol.  It extends the ALTO Cost Map service
&gt;    and ALTO Property Map service so that the application can decide
&gt;    which endpoint(s) to connect based on not only numerical/ordinal cost
&gt;    values but also details of the paths.  This is useful for
&gt;    applications whose performance is impacted by specified components of
&gt;    a network on the end-to-end paths, e.g., they may infer that several
&gt;    paths share common links and prevent traffic bottlenecks by avoiding
&gt;    such paths.  This extension introduces a new abstraction called
&gt;    Abstract Network Element (ANE) to represent these components and
&gt;    encodes a network path as a vector of ANEs.  Thus, it provides a more
&gt;    complete but still abstract graph representation of the underlying
&gt;    network(s) for informed traffic optimization among endpoints.
&gt; Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
&gt; until the htmlized version and diff are available at
&gt; The IETF Secretariat
