COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Both the Abstract and Introduction contain text like this:

   This specification is also applicable to GENEVE encapsulation;
   however, some incremental work is required which will be covered in a
   separate document.

and the Introduction references draft-boutros-bess-evpn-geneve-00.txt, which
looks like an individual -00 draft. I wonder if it would be better to drop the
promise from this document, and make the relationship clear in whatever version
of draft-boutros-bess-evpn-geneve is published.

I'm fine with the working group publishing this draft with the promise
included, but wanted to ask while we're reviewing it, rather than later.
