Given the tight timing of the meeting, I don't want to derail things. 
If we have time, I'll raise this at the mic.

But I do have a question on slide 2 of 
.  I see DHCP along side the [I2RS] control plane DSes.  I understand 
that the I2RS agent will handle the resolution of multiple client writes 
using priorities.

But how does that play with DHCP or local config?  In our ephemeral 
requirements draft we say that local config (<intended> in this drawing) 
would have a priority.  And that in the <applied> state the device would 
have to resolve the local priorities with the "winning" config from the 
I2RS agent.  But then DHCP writes a route.  How will that be handled?

I would like some clarity with respect to our priority requirements in 
the ephemeral state draft.
