Thanks for the updated version of the draft.
More inline.

Thanks for the clarification. Agreed.
And for clarification, my point was that fast-conn-restore seemed to target more the "fast restoration" application of add path than the "optimal routing" application. (and to some extent, this may also be true for BESTEXT)
As you wish, you may also cite draft-ietf-idr-add-paths-guidelines and possibly the add path mode(s) that you would recommend for AIGP. (e.g. AS-wide best path).

Best regards,
