I must admit that I'm having a hard time understanding the utility of this, and
how exactly systems are supposed to make a reasonable decision based upon the
information -- I don't **really** care that the probability of the link being
at 100Mbps is 99.995%, what I care about is what the available bandwidth is
*now*. When my device has a 123Mbps flow, it needs to decide what to do with it
-- I get that this document describes how the bandwidth probability can be
transmitted, but how should my device use this information?

I'm also confused by the table:
Sub-bandwidth (Mbps)   Availability
   ------------------     ------------
   200                    99.99%
   100                    99.995%
   100                    99.999%

Is there an error here?

I also support the DISCUSS on the floating-point issue -- perhaps this could be
much more simply encoded with a table and some bits? E.G: 25%, 50%, 75%, 80%,
90%, 91%, 92%.. 99%. If > 99%, then the remaining gets used to encode the
"number of nines" availability (5 == 5 nines).
