Martin Vigoureux, 2017-12-05 11:34:

Perhaps draft-ietf-bess-evpn-overlay could hint on such a Geneve
work for EVPN; something like: "Adapting the EVPN control plane to the
Geneve encapsulation is out of the scope of this document, and is
expected to be covered in a separate document based on the same
architectural principles"

I will add the following sentence to the abstract.
“This specification is also applicable to other NVO encapsulations such as
GENEVE, GPE, and GUE; however, these encapsulations may require additional
incremental work and thus will be specified in separate document(s).”

I think that mentioning other encapsulations (beyond Geneve) is not
necessary (and may raise more questions).  IOW, I like Martin’s suggested
text more.

In either case, at least add an Informative reference
to draft-boutros-bess-evpn-geneve.
