i think we have multiple flavors of signaling.  i am not sure there is a
crisp taxonomy, but some of the spaces could be describes as

  o hard core routing data, bgp classic

  o state signals, please chill out i am gonna sleep/restart/die

  o conditions, the circuit's bandwidth, color, delay, flavor

  o policies, prefix limits, code flavor, ...

and we're trying to squeeze them all into some funny containers, bgp
tlvs, capabilities, bgp-ls, ...; most of which were designed for other
purposes.

as you point out, draft-ietf-idr-operational-message is another
container which kinda tried to hold some of these.  it could certainly
deal with the proposal at hand.

but it sure would be nice if we had a little archetectural structure
and regularity here.
