Hi all, 

during the ATOCA meeting at IETF#79 Igor raised a question regarding requirement D2:

      The protocol solution MUST allow delivery of messages
      simultaneously to a large audience.

He was asking whether there is a need to put a number for large audience there.

Maybe Igor has a specific number in mind that would matter from a protocol design perspective but I do not have such a number that would provide a meaningful distinction. 

There is, however, the question what types of problems we expect with very large number of alert message receivers and how we document this aspect in the requirements document. 

Suggestions? Thoughts?
