Dear all

I have read the following draft, but I am not sure if I really understood 
what is the
scope of staring the DCPEL BOF/WG.


Bellow are some questions for you:

Is the scope of starting this BOF/WG the specification of new Per
Domain Behaviours (PDBs) and the specification of new interfaces that can be 
by existing signaling protocols (such as NSIS) to influence/ manage these 

>From what I have read, another scope of this BOF/WG will be
the specification of a new Difsserv control plane architecture and 
This architecture can be centralized or distributed.

Could you specify what do you mean by a distributed Difsserv control plane 
Will this distributed approach impact an individual Diffserv router, e.g., a 
Diffserv core router?

>From what I know other stardardisation bodies are working for a long time 
on a centralized (bandwidth broker like) architecture/framework.
Such standardisation bodies are:
the ITU-t, ETSI-tispan, DSL, packetcable, 3gpp, 3gpp2,  ipshere, wimax.
My question is how is the DCPEL effort related to this work?

Best Regards,
