I think Jeff's suggestion to add the Administrative Reset (subcode 4)
case is a good one. There can be value in attachting contact information
or a case identifier to BGP resets. Matthew mentioned (outside of this
mailing list) that this information would especially be useful if after
the reset, the BGP session does not re-establish. Also, conceptually the
'reset' and 'shutdown' are close to each other as they are initiated by
the Administrator.

However, I consider the other subcodes out of scope for what
draft-ietf-idr-shutdown tries to accomplish, and as such would belong in
their own Internet-Draft.

Kind regards,
