Hi Hannes, et al, 

Using the IS-IS Segment Routing encodings directly is problem since the
IS-IS and OSPF encodings are not identical. In fact, for the LAN adjacency
SID, they cannot be identical since the protocols do not use the same
identifiers. Additionally, doing this inter-WG really defeats the one of
the main design tenets of BGP LS Distribution. Excerpt from section 3 of

   It is desired to keep the dependencies on the protocol source of this
   attributes to a minimum and represent any content in an IGP neutral
   way, such that applications which do want to learn about a Link-state
   topology do not need to know about any OSPF or IS-IS protocol

I would request that you do the same for the Segment Routing TLVs rather
than having the normative references to the IS-IS segment routing draft. I
would not support WG adoption in its current form.
