temperature, current are critical values for routing equipment, aren't they?

[Qin]: My understanding is yes, there is hardware YANG model which can be used to collect these inventory data associated with the routing equipment
See RFC8348.

It seems that we ought to seek convergence here.
That's what I'm saying.  That any split here is for historical reasons, and does not make sense going forward.

[Qin]: Tend to agree, unified data modeling or semantics interoperability may be the solution. One of example is to
Build digital twin data model and models sensor data and network device health data together.
