Support the adoption of this draft.

About 10 years ago the suggestion of a configured network-wide MPLS label was considered sacrilegious as I suggested it then for aggregate tunnels for MP2MP to simplify operation ; however, with the advent of controller-based solutions, such usages are becoming more common place. A few suggestions:

  1.  Discuss upfront that such approach is well suited for controller-based solution
  2.  Discuss upfront the benefits of aggregate labels for MP2MP just as you have done for P2MP
  3.  Make a more realistic example for ESI labels. You don’t need to over sell it ☺ Majority of multi-homing are dual-homing with a few triple and quad homing. Having multi-homing with 1000 PEs is very far-fetched ☺
