I'm sorry I have given you that impression. Sorrier still if the text in the I-D
leaves you with that impression.

It was my intention that this document defined a label that could be used for
the limited form of concatenated slot that is currently defined by the ITU-T.
It was also my intention that the document clearly and unequivocally states that
the label is not for any undefined (by the ITU-T) data plane constructs.
However, I wanted to ensure that the defined label is forward compatible.

Well, it is a WG I-D so my reason, as editor, is governed by what the WG wants.
I had formed the opinion, in the run up to WG adoption, that the WG supported
this idea. And before I posted the revised I-D, I circulated the text on the
list, received a couple of comments, and tweaked the text. I don't believe I
heard anyone objecting to the idea at that time.

Perhaps the chairs can help guide us to understand what the WG wants included in
the document.
