Actually, no.

Let me know if you believe any other aspect (other than 'resource' language) should be updated in the upcoming version 18.

I may have misunderstood the thread below, but I read it as there are
two areas in -17 that should be  clarified.

Thanks,
Lou

It is simply dividing up a matrix into several pieces in case the size of the matrix becomes too big or a way to advertize the changed port/label set in one place (sub-matrix) then other unchanged port/label set in other place (different sub-matrix). The identifier for each sub-matrix is the MATRIX ID. There is not separate identifier to direct from input. The input is a part of the sub-matrix. Say if we have N*M matrix that describes all input and output port/label. We might divide up into N*(M-L) and N*L or any other combinations as far as they are all disjoint from each other.

>>
>> Minor Issues:
>>
>> None
>>
>> Nits:
>>
>> 1) In section 1.2, label continuity constraint (e.g., wavelength continuity in WSON) is mentioned. However, I am not sure whether information elements for which this document specifies encodings can describe such constraint. My reading is that information element such as Port Label Restriction is rather for describing wavelength tuning capabilities/restrictions.
>>
>> YOUNG>> Label continuity constraints can be inferred from the two places in the draft: (i) Port Label Restriction, which gives the set of labels (wavelengths) that may not be available on certain links including tuning range/restriction; (ii) Available/Shared Backup Label Fields (section 2.4 & section 2.5). There is no encoding for label continuity constraint per se. The aforementioned constraints are encoded to give a node or a PCE to be able to compute a path (i.e., path with wavelength continuity) subject to these constraints. 
>>
>> 2) In section 2.1, it says "two matrices will not have the same {src port, src label, dst port, dst label}". To be precise, I guess this should be "two matrices will not have the same {src port, src label}, and two matrices will not have the same {dst port, dst label}"?
>>
>> YOUNG>> I think your suggestion may be too restrictive. For instance, if we have one source (port 1) and one destination (port 2) with two labels each. Then we would have: {(1,1,2,1), (1,1,2,2), (1,2,2,1), (1,2,2,2)} I think with the current statement, we can send this info in any combination of multiple matrices, which I think perfectly fine. With your suggestion, I would not be able send (1,1,2,1) and (1,1,2,2) together. Why would this not be made possible? My take is as long as each submatrix represents a set of disjoint quadruples, that should be allowed. 
>>
>> 3) In section 2.1, it says "The value of 0xFF is reserved for use with port wavelength constraints". I think "port wavelength constraints" should be "port label restriction".
>>
>> YOUNG>> Yes, thanks. 
>>
