Hi Linda,

I think you are mixing data plane and control plane.

In SDWAN data plane is of no issue as you are interconnecting sites in a
given VPN over mesh of secure tunnels.

You are asking how to keep control plane separate between VPN instances.
This is precisely what RFC4364 does already and RT import/export is used to
indicate the instance which given set of reachability belongs. Why to
reinvent the wheel and do something new just for the heck of it :) ?

To be original you can at best invent a different name to Route target(s)
carried in the SAFI 128 but let's keep the mechanism the same. That would
be my suggestion.

Kind regards,
R.

PS. While this is obvious for some many folks are still confused. RFC4364
does not need to run over MPLS data plane. It can run over IPSec or over
DTLS or over UDP/IP just fine.
