Hi Suresh,
	Thanks for your feedback. A few comments below inline with SB//

Thanks
Sarah

SB// I understand the point here, but I also feel strongly that it's not a problem. I've not had a customer yet ask for an SDN controller that wasn't leveraging OpenFlow. We can update the text to reflect this choice (the loose alignment to OpenFlow) and I'm open to feedback on specific test cases that you see as too OpenFlow specific, and we'll review to see if we can make them more generic.

SB// Agreed. We're reviewing now. Thanks again for the feedback
