Hi, everyone,

I think the distinction is between "default" and "default", i.e. clearly
communicating what is meant by "default" in this document.

I think it would be perfectly fine for implementers to provide copious
"release notes" detailing what has changed, AND to apply whatever policy
gunk is necessary, on performing a software upgrade, to ensure no adverse
effects.

In other words, "default" here would mean the out-of-the-box behavior of an
otherwise unconfigured device, when BGP is enabled (regardless of AFI/SAFI
combinations).

By definition, a new deployment of a router can't cut off connectivity,
since it cannot come into existence with said connectivity.

Would making that distinction suffice, for everyone?

Brian

P.S. While I do applaud the vendor(s) for finally deciding not to break
things when code gets upgraded, separating upgrade from new deploy is all
that is required.
