Thank you John for bringing it on IDR. 

As an update to RFC4271, I am not sure if I agree with the EBGP policy configuration. There are lot of DC networks (for example) that use EBGP within their CLOS. This extension may not be applicable in such networks.

I would request authors to consider refining text to include appropriate EBGP use cases and not make it generic for EBGP sessions (defined in 4271).

    IDR folks,
    As many of you have already noticed, draft-ietf-grow-bgp-reject-05 has completed GROW WGLC and is now in IETF LC.
    As nobody other than Alvaro noticed (thank you for noticing, Alvaro!) draft-ietf-grow-bgp-reject-05 represents an update to RFC 4271, in that it mandates what a BGP implementation MUST do. See section 2 of the draft for the details. It's short and easy to read.
    If we had noticed this earlier, we would have either chosen to home the document in IDR, or explicitly made an exception to have GROW do the work. Given that we didn't, though, the plan is to continue progressing the draft as a GROW document. However:
    - As I understand it, the authors will add the Updates: 4271 header in addition to potentially taking in other comments from AD review.
    - If anyone has a strong objection to the unusual procedure, please say so (either on-list, or to the chairs + AD).
    - Please send any last call comments to the IETF LC (see below) although it's also OK to discuss here on the IDR list of course.
    Many IDR participants are also active in GROW and have had their say, but if you haven't, now's your chance.
