Dear Authors,

I am interested in your draft. I promised (right now at the BMWG 
meeting) to review it. I wonder if you are willing to do an update in 
the near future (i.e. within a few weeks), as then I would review the 
updated version.

I also have questions. Have you done a case study, in which you compared 
the efficiency of MLR search with that of the traditional binary search? 
I would be interested in RFC 2544 compliant (zero loss rate) throughput 
measurements. How much faster is your algorithm than traditional binary 
search? Could we state something like "MLR produces better quality 
results than binary search" ?

Please send me a pointer, if you have published such results!
