I think it's a good addition within the architecture for the case IGP is
not used for signalling, e.g. when controller or static programming.

The draft must however explain in what scenarios it is used and quote the
according IGP drafts to guarantee loop-free behavior (well, BIER will
tie-break loops but we'll have 1x microloop & possibly not deliver payload
if BIER FRR is not properly computed/intsalled). With that the draft should
also pay attention to how the function is deployed/updated network-wide if
IGP is not present
