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

Section 2.3.1.3

  [...] This benchmark is obtained by sending asynchronous
   messages from every connected Network Device at the rate that the
   controller processes (without dropping them).

"obtained" doesn't feel like the right word.

I'm also a little surprised that there is not consideration to a
more-general "acceptable loss fraction" for which the processing
rate is determined -- the zero-loss case is certainly interesting,
but sometimes it is also useful to know how the system's behavior
degrades.
